* It consumes less memory per same page but I see the hd sbar module getting crazy on read/writes. Is it possible to configure Wayfarer to dump everything on ram and not the hd as with OWB?
These are two main causes for the intensive HD writing:
1) Disk cache (which saves page data to Wayfarer/Cache/Curl/), which can be disabled from the Settings (set it to 0MB).
2) SQLite writes cookie database and local storage files, and their journal files, to the HD without any caching. OWB writes its cookie database only when quitting the browser, but Wayfarer does that immediately when pages update their cookies. Certain pages seem to update the cookies even once per second or so, which can cause several writes per second to the HD (first creating a journal file, then updating the actual file, then deleting the journal file, etc). I don't think there's any other solution than softlink the whole Wayfarer/Cache/ directory to somewhere in RAM: (MakeLink Cache T: or something like that). The downside is that pages don't remember your personal stuff then if you'd like that, and you also should disable the disk cache too, but I'm running the browser like this myself.
I would like to see separate options to disable cookie database saving and local storage from Wayfarer settings... users could select better what they want to be written to the HD then...Quote:
* Is it possible to have a personal bar on gui (i.e. below address bar) where we can place the bookmarks?
I think you mean the Quick link buttons like in OWB. This should be on the jaca's todo-list.. I pressured him little regarding this ;) This feature still keeps me using OWB for "everyday" browsing, because I have important pages set in the Quick links bar, and it's really more efficient to have a quick look at frequently used pages by these buttons than try to find them from a pull-down menu or from a separate bookmarks list.Quote:
* I imported my OWB bookmarks correctly, however bookmark folders which had sub folders don't display correctly when clicking on Bookmarks option
I guess you mean the Bookmarks menu? The pull-down menus in MorphOS (and Amiga?) are restricted to two levels, so only one sub menu will be shown and the rest are filtered. The only way to dig the deeper levels of bookmarks is to select the "Bookmarks -> Manage..." option and open them from the separate bookmarks tab then.
