Re: Disable the Chimera disk cache

Um, doesn't disabling the disk cache slow down browsing when revisiting static web sites?

That's what I am seeing...

I have found that if I disable the disk cache, going to sites that have big static images load slower the first time within a single session. I can see the images progressively load. The second time I access the site in that session they load instantly. I presume there is a RAM cache in effect on that second access. If I quit and restart, the first access is slow again.

If I leave the cache enabled, the static images load instantly even after quitting and restarting (after I have been to the site at least once).

I would say YMMV on this hint.
