How to move the Firefox or Chrome cache to a RAM disk and speed up surfing by 20% or more (Download Squad)

Nov 10th 2010 7:04PM Thanks for the great tip! This has cured my FF 3.6* scrolling lag bug which many people have. It wasn't as bad with a clean install of FF, but with my regular highly extension version, sites like Engadget were becoming a pain, so much so that I was switching over to Chrome or IE9b to read it. Now it's all fast and smooth like with FF4.

Review: 2010 Suzuki Kizashi GTS is up for the Challenge (Autoblog)

Dec 8th 2009 12:38AM Curious what some of the US mags are saying. Here's Autocar:

http://www.autocar.co.uk/CarReviews/FirstDrives/Suzuki-Kizashi-2.4/245218/

"Dynamically, the standout is the chassis. Whether it’s driving through town or attacking some good B-road corners, the Kizashi feels crisp, poised and super responsive - a real quality act."

"Skeptical? You’re maybe not alone there, but the fact is, straight out the box, the Kizashi ranks as an extraordinary effort. It's a crying shame a car this good is not on its way to the UK. Sure, it would be a bit of a curio, perhaps, but the Kizashi is a cracking drive."

Jul 23rd 2009 6:59PM Don't know if my FF 3.5, is slower than it should be, but I was just doing some back to back testing with this at rendering pages, and it's crazy fast. Plus the default interface is much nicer looking - c'mon Mozilla get some good designers!

MyDefrag: The disk defragmenter formerly known as JkDefrag (Download Squad)

Jul 23rd 2009 6:33PM JKDefrag is/was a great program. Especially useful is the screensaver function which will automatically defrag the disk, which is good for a freebie, as many of my clients never remember to do it.
