sorry i forgot milti, he cant attend on account that he is too old.

btw here is a definition of browse

to eat, nibble at, or feed on (leaves, tender shoots, or other soft vegetation)

Not as old as you mate, at a mere 70 that makes me a spring chicken in comparison to your 86 years :lol:

I think GR ought to rename his browser as " PSYCHOBROWSER!!!! :lol: :lol:

Where is that Sotiraki? :?

Anyway, the only downside to disabling disk cache is that cache-related Meta string settings (such as pragma, no-expire, etc) of websites loaded, cannot be honored in this browser.

But, that's not very important… we offer a fresh copy of the site *every* time so they ALL expire regardless of settings! :lol:

Needless to say that a site that is scripted to reset itself every so many seconds, will also have its pre-set schedule interfered with but the loading speed gained is a good trade-off.

Today’s Internet speeds are so fast that the disk cache has become obsolete for you can load a fresh copy of a website from the Internet faster than Chromium fetching it from its monstrous database, and I suspect the only reason popular browsers keep the cache is to honor what I mentioned above.

Fantastic stuff… :)

I reckon it's 'Astronomically Brilliant' mate (and voted accordingly.

I reckon all the others are jealous because they can't do what you can, keep at it. :wink:

Don’t kid yourself Sotiraki mou… :lol:

You don’t have the software development experience and there’s not enough website development (front or back end) experience that can help you when it comes to writing full blown desktop software… they are a different animal.

It’s what separates the men from the boys… :)



These days Web Development is software development. And besides all you are using are web technologies anyways (javascript etc) so nothing that I couldn't do if I had a desire to waste my time for nothing ;)

Oh, I have found my long lost Sotiraki… :D

I thought he went and cut his veins or something! :?

Ok, well I’ve created a custom header just for you to give you a head start… :lol:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title>The Super Browser</title>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<meta name="description" content="The world's most powerful browser codenamed GR_destroyer!">
<meta name="keywords" content="I, am, the, greatest, developer, on, the, planet">
<meta name="author" content="Master Sotirakis"> <---- :lol:

Ok, so now you’ve got a bunch of text file scripts sitting on your hard disk so how do they become an executable desktop application delivered to user’s desktops? :?

Nonsense! You are so clueless it is not even funny... but I am going to laugh anyway :lol: Local cache is way faster than downloading something over the internat. Chrome can load assets from the cache in just a matter of a couple of milliseconds max, while downloading the same assets from the internet can take 100s of milliseconds for each file. Here are the results from my 12Mbit connection for the cyprus forum with and without cache:

Image with the results with cache enabled. 52KB needs to be downloaded and rendering is done in 2.5 seconds. Note that assets that can be loaded from cache need just 0-2 milliseconds each:

Image with the results with cache disabled. 672KB needs to be downloaded and rendering is done in 5.43 seconds... more that twice as much. Note that the assets that before took 0-2 milliseconds to load, now need to downloaded over the network which takes 100s of milliseconds for each file, which add up to several seconds in total.

Should I teach you even the basics now GR? In the Chrome developer tools (you can get to them by pressing F12) in the Network tab there is a "disable cache" option. You can see that option is checked in the second image.
