Valid code means that browser doesn’t have to make, create and merge your code to make it work. A page with the correct DOCTYPE and structure will render quicker within the browser, it also helps with browser compatibility.

2. Reduce the HTTP Requests

As well as the time it takes to download a file off the server it also takes time to request the file, so the less actual requests you make the faster it will be. A brilliant example of this is CSS sprites which combine multiple images into one and use the CSS background property to only show the portion of the image you require.

How To Open 2 Gmail accounts with the same Firefox Version

Here’s the trick below to open multiple gmail accounts with the same version of firefox.

  1. Open the Run dialog. In linux, press Alt+F2. On Windows, press WinKey+R.
  2. In the dialog box, type “firefox -p -no-remote”. This will bring up firefox’s profiles dialog box.
  3. Click on “Create Profile” and follow the wizard. Lets assume you named the profile as “gmail2“.
  4. Now close the dialogs and return to desktop.

Now, open the Run dialog again. In the dialog box, type “firefox -p gmail2 -no-remote“.

“-no-remote” option is very important because it creates an isolated session that is different from the currently open firefox windows of other profiles. If -no-remote option is not given, then a new window of the currently running profile or the default profile is opened, where session sharing happens (which we don’t want).

Now, since sessions aren’t shared between different profiles, you can open two accounts and happily have them.

How to Use Gmail Labels as Folders?

Many of the internet users(including my friends) opt for Yahoo mail because it contains Folders.

Actually Gmail Labels provides more functionality than Yahoo Mails Folders. Gmail allows you to put emails into Labels or both Inbox and Label.

Here is how you can set Labels as Folders:

  • Go Under Settings Tab.
  • Choose Labels Tab and Create a New Label ( I used Google).

  • Click on Next.
  • Mark the BoxSkip the Inbox(Archive it) and Apply the Label Google
