Hi Loungers, what do you set your disk space to in your browser ? See attached image. My default browser is FF, its size is pre-set to use 50mb but shows no size recommendations.
IMHO I set mine to 50mb.My,Days to Keep Pages in History set to (one) 1.
Note,look under where it reads Disk space to use.(Recommended; 50-250MB)
Your computer stores copies of frequently accessed pages in the disk cache. This way, the computer doesn't have to retrieve the page from the network each time you view it.
Important: A larger disk cache allows more pages to be quickly retrieved, but more of your hard disk space is used.
To refresh a page at any time:
* Click the Reload button in the browser's Navigation Toolbar. The computer checks the network to make sure you have the latest version of the page.
Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them. -Albert Einsten
The size you should use depends on your network connection. If you have a broadband connection 50MB should be plenty. If you have something slower than broadband you ought to consider making the size larger. How much larger is up to you. It pretty much depends on how you feel your system is running.
To add to Joe's post, I have a pretty rapid cable connection (Time Warner Road Runner with Turbo Boost) hence I choose a smaller size (50 MB) and choose not to save pages at all. In fact I purge my temp. internet files when I close my browser. My browser (either IE or Chrome, betas of both) open very speedily because of my connection. I also use Last Pass to sign onto my pages which also speed things up nicely.
