Details

On a fast internet-connection, the number of opened connections to a site is to
low. (It looks like its limited to 2 connections)

Especially when some objects on the are download from other (not responding)
servers. Like banners, or icq icons. Or when there are a lot of small objects.

Sometimes, the upper part of the site didn't load until the requests for the icq
flowers times out. In that case it takes more then 60 seconds to load the whole
page.

This is on purpose. The limit is two per server, not per page, and in fact
things are faster this way.

Well, at the time some images being loaded from other server, de remaining part
of the page didn't load. Even other windows didn't start loading its page, until
requests are timed out.
We block the parser on external js or css. Are you sure that you're not seeing that.
The site actually takes longer to load in Communicator 4.79b1 with 6 connections
configured. Cable modem access here ......
try IE... you'll notice that it likewise limits its number of connections to
2... this is strongly advised by the http spec in an effort to be nice to web
servers.

and, as bbaetz said: in general, it actually makes downloading pages faster...
independent of connection bandwidth.
