Description

Create controls for handling WebView's cache.

Actions #1

Updated by Soren Stoutner almost 7 years ago

  • Parent task set to #86

These would be detailed controls showing what is cached for each domain. Doing so will have to wait until after Privacy WebView is added in the 4.x series.

In case it wasn't obvious, one of the abilities of this feature will be to entirely disable the web cache.

Great. Although I've been having the same practice by softlinking directories either to tmpfs or /dev/null, such as $HOME/.cache, Service worker, GPUShaderCache, Sessions, Local/Session storage, History, etc. Works for all kinds of chromium based browsers. Some, I point to tmpfs instead of /dev/null, caz there are some that cause breakage on nullifying.

Although, I still have to add lot more directories into the mix, that I'm not aware of can be done.

Then I've mistaken your words which were for the PC variant I guess.
Btw, as for softlinking these to /dev/null a good practice ? Or am I doing something wrong?
If that's not a good practice, I'll stop doin it & revert them back.

Btw, I've disabled all clear toggles in settings. Clear & Exit for me, is only executed when I close all tabs.

I don't know if it causes any problems or not. Generally, WebView will just make a new request for information if it can't find it in the cache. But I am not sure if not finding it in the cache is always the same experience as reading from /dev/null.

You can test it out either way. As long a WebView doesn't misbehave there shouldn't be any problem with it.

As of now, no misbehaves were occured, until you mentioned these errors in my log #1136#note-47 for the build #1136#note-42.
