New Mozilla Cache Lands!
Tuesday March 20th, 2001
The new cache, which will be used for HTTP, FTP, and the new imagelib (which uses part of the memcache for decompressed images) landed today. With this ground-up rewrite the loading of cached copies should be "significantly faster." Check out the full story for an excellent summary of this new cache from Gagan Saksena and to find out how you can help test the new cache.

The mozilla team is working hard to reduce the footprint and to make mozilla start a bit faster. Buzzword here is 'precompiled' code. Precompiled source means no comments, no whitespaces and reformatted text.
Smaller files, less memory consumption and a faster startup for mozilla. Just to be more realistic :)
