You think we test such things with the naked eye? :)

The only thing broken is your autistic brain you spastic pea-brained cunt! :lol:


No I know how these things are tested, and I do not believe the Classic is faster than Mozilla, Chrome, or Opera.

In any case, most people will not even know the difference, and the user experience with the Classic just isn't there.

The Cache is very important for performance. For example if you visit this forum without anything in the cache you would need to download nearly 90 files, while if the forum has been cached recently you will need to download less than 15. I hope that you at least only clear the cache when the browser is closed, and you don't need to re-download all files with every single page view!

No Sotos, forget your 1980 cache stories… that’s all over! :lol:

Fetching content over the Internet is faster that digging into a 400mb cache file to retrieve a shitty little image here and another portion over there… by the time you make 90 such binary searches in a 400mb cache file, the Classic has already fetched the page from the server twice over!

Essentially it comes down to…

Internet baud rate vs Multiple digs into cache file and hard disk transfer rate

The Classic doesn't have a cache yet loads pages faster than any cache-based browser you may care to mention. The superior loading speed of the Classic is testament of what I’m saying.

Therefore… don’t just talk but TEST for yourself and THEN come and lecture me.

There's a good boy... :)


The file is coming from some computer anyways. Instead of taking it from your own computer, you are requesting it from some remote server, and then on top of that you have to incur the network latency which even in the best case scenario it would be many times greater than the time it takes to fetch a file from a local drive or your own RAM.

Yeah, but he provides arguments -right or wrong it doesn't matter- whereas you only provide name calling.

Quit giving me a headache re Soto and go run some tests.

Aren’t you people tired of shooting your mouths off with nothing to show for it, and no research conducted?

If you’re REALLY interested in this subject I invite you to my workshop over the weekend where I can set up timers and happily demonstrate my theory in a variety of ways.

If not then you’ll have to take my word for it and move on… that would be the honorable thing to do.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’ve got a ton of work to do. :)
