Disable Safari 4 Beta's Top Sites web page previews

That's not the problem. The problem is that Safari creates two Webpage Previews of every webpage you visit. I had more than 1 GB.

Disable Safari 4 Beta's Top Sites web page previews

Well I've been clearing mine now and then, but I pretty much got 1 GB of webpage previews in two weeks.

I wonder if setting topsites to use small previews will help reducing the total file size. I did notice that resizing Safari, and then clicking the reload icon at the right in the location bar, slightly changes the preview images when they are re-fetched -- which is odd, as the history shows them much larger anyway.

Or maybe the size of the Safari window matters (thus: the size of the history view) and not the size due to the number of previews in topsites. But then: history should not be re-fetched at some later time.

I'll investigate...
