[quote=Lyx] Just a sidenote regarding SQLite: The constant harddisk access which i mentioned in the following post: http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?1,88326,95744#msg-95744 ...is related to SQLite behaviour. I also described this behaviour in detail on mozillazine, and it was considered "not necessarily a bug": http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=6238095#p6238095 http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=6243495#p6243495 In short, before the switch to sqlite, firefox would only update its data (bookmarks, history) in long intervals, when adding data or on app close. With the transition to SQLite, a different policy more typical to a database was applied: Always write to the disk whenever even a minor change to user-data happens. And when we're already doing that, who cares about checking if there even IS new data - lets just flush the DB-Journal in hardcoded intervals, rather than when its necessary. The problem with that - besides of wasting ressources - is that this way the harddrive will never enter powersaving mode. Personally, i think that only important user data (bookmarks, passwords) should be instantly written to disk when modified. For nearly everyone, it really doesn't matter much, that if the app crashes, some recent history or usage-stats are lost. What they'd want at most, is recovery of open tabs.[/quote]
