Re: Odyssey LocalStorage

Subject: Re: Odyssey LocalStorage

AFAIR Fab said somewhere that Oddysey has no on-disk cache.

Why is this ?
A local cache is one of the most useful features of a browser.

I find that Odyssey does not work well with sites that have heavy use of javascript, like ebay and homebase.co.uk. Often the only way to continue is kill the dead connections and do a refresh and it is extremely inefficient to have to reload all the files that should be in a locally accessible cache. Especially when stuck with 512kbps broadband !

Does anyone have the slightest idea as to what the Cache Model setting does in Prefs ? It has settings of Document Viewer, Document Browser and Primary Web Brower. None of which seem to do anything or improve performance.

On a related note, when dead connections have been aborted, browsing can continue but the LED indicators are not freed up. Once these have all been used odyssey grinds to a halt and has to be closed down and restarted.
