           Summary: [SOUP] Consider reducing max simultaneous connections
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: Platform
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: mcatanzaro at gnome.org

I noticed this code in Source/WebCore/platform/network/soup/SoupNetworkSession.cpp:

    // Values taken from http://www.browserscope.org/ following
    // the rule "Do What Every Other Modern Browser Is Doing". They seem
    // to significantly improve page loading time compared to soup's
    // default values.
    static const int maxConnections = 35;
    static const int maxConnectionsPerHost = 6;

I checked Browserscope [1], and Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari all allow 17 connections nowadays. Chrome only allows 10. I have no clue if reducing max connections will improve performance, but I like the sound of "Do What Every Other Modern Browser Is Doing"....
