Speed up Firefox page loading time without using a RAM disk

Yesterday we wrote about moving the cache of Firefox or Chrome onto a RAM disk. Instead of loading cached images and data from the hard drive, it loads from memory, which is a lot faster. It turns out, though, that Firefox can do this without using a RAM disk -- you can simply do it with about:config. Just follow these instructions -- and don't worry, if you mess it up, you won't break...

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

If you're old enough, you probably remember what a RAM disk is. Back in the olden days, to squeeze every last bit of juice out of your computer (usually for the purpose of playing Doom), you could load a program into a RAM disk -- a virtual drive made out of spare RAM. As I'm sure you know, RAM is a lot faster than your hard drive Fast forward to today, and most computers have a lot of spare...

Textarea Cache text - and life - saving Firefox add-on now supports Firefox 4

Textarea Cache is a longtime Download Squad favorite. In fact, it has been featured in our 2009 Firefox add-on pack, and I've been using it for ages. It's a very simple add-on that constantly saves the contents of whatever text area you're writing in. Then, if (or rather when) Firefox crashes, you still have your text. If you only compose Gmail messages, it may not be very handy (because Gmail...

Adobe Flash Player 10.1 to cooperate with private browsing modes

There have been more than a few blog posts lately talking about how websites can use Flash cookies to keep tabs on you even if you're visiting their site using your browser's private browsing mode. It would appear, however, that the crew at Adobe thinks this is something which should change. According to a post on NeoWin, Adobe is working to make sure that Flash 10.1 will play nice with the...

Clear your browser cache with these one-click solutions

If you are a web designer or developer, one of the issues you probably face on a daily basis is browser cache. For those who are unaware of this issue, your browser - whether it be Firefox or Internet Explorer - captures all web pages and images when you browse and saves them in the browser cache. This is so that next time you go to a website, you can quickly access the saved files in your cache...

Optimize Windows' memory usage with Cacheman

As I've mentioned in previous posts, for the number of apps I tend to run concurrently, my system is starved for RAM. Yes, I know this could be easily remedied, but until I get around to it I'm really enjoying Cacheman, a Windows app from Outer Technologies that's "designed to improve the performance of your computer by optimizing the disk cache, memory and a number of other settings."...

District court rules Google Cache doesn't violate copyright

EFF's Fred von Lohmann is reporting on a decision by a Nevada district court ruling that Google Cache, which makes available copies of web pages that might no longer be available from their original provider, does not violate content owners' copyrights. Attorney and writer Blake Field had sued Google for caching writings on his web site, but the court ruled that Google Cache did not violate...
