I just compared my download speeds with FF and IE. IE starts with my internet cap and keeps up that speed if the server it downloads from is fast.. FF starts from 4 or 5 times my internet cap speed and then drops to the actual cap speed, but still.. For small files it would make a big difference (e.g.: FF - 2 secs, IE - 10 secs) .. Anyone else get this 'super-boost' while downloading files with FF? :D

i think it starts downloading while you are in the window to accept the download and save that path

so when it actually shows it is downloading it has alreayd been downloading and that is why u see all those high score.

i have a bandwidth metter that shows my bandwidth and i am sure this is what happens
