Question about Palm LifeDrive Mobile Manager Handheld
I am currently surfing the net wirelessly from my lifedrive, and was wondering how I could speed up browsing. When I have read a page and want to go back to the previous page, if I click on the green back arrow, Blazer reloads the entire page, making it quite slow to browse all the threads. On my pc, the previous page is stored somewhere in the temporary memory until I clear the cache - usually on exiting my browser. Is the any way that I can get Blazer to do something similar and thus stop uneccessary downloading of a new page every time?

Blazer does have a cache, but I'm not sure exactly how it uses it. I did an experiment in an attempt to find out how much of a page it caches, but I didn't learn a lot. I went to a page, then jumped to another, then turned WiFi off. When I hit the "Back" button, the LifeDrive refused to open the page without me reactivating WiFi. Still, I can tell the cache is working. When I go to a site with lots of graphics, the first page opens kind of slowly. However, when I go to other pages on that site that have the same graphics, pages load more quickly. So, apparently at least some parts of a page go into a cache, but you can't view it entirely from the cache. Also, the delay in opening pages is often not the downloading of a page, but the rendering of it once it is downloaded. The cache can't help you there.
