View Full Version : Mac OS X Caching: Doesn't seem to work.

Hey there,
Does anyone on Mac OS X actually see caching taking place in their
browsers (I've used 4.1b1 to today's 5.0.0)? Using Safari, Internet
Explorer, and Netscape (and I'd imagine any other OS X browser, though
these are a definite "who's who") is really slow because all of the
images on "status_header.html" and "playlist.html" re-load every single
time. Why can they not be cached?

I remember a while ago someone pointed to some server code (perl?) that
was going to be altered to tell the browser that a re-load wasn't
necessary... but it doesn't look like it's worked on OS X at any time.

Any thoughts? I've hated this slow-down since Day 1. Thanks,
