Um, what? How much space can a browser possibly consume?

My IE6 on Win2K takes a whopping 11.6mb, with Firefox v2 taking 28.8mb

Every version of Internet Explorer I have ever used has had a "porn" mode on it. As soon as I start it up, hundreds of porn sites start opening up all over my desktop. It happens too fast for me to close them all and I have to quit IE. When I use their instant messenger, I get solicited by hookers. What gives?

Its about time. I hate looking at porn and then seeing people type into google search bars on my laptop. Only for the search to anticipate their typing.

Example: Someone starts typing in "associate" or "assistant" into a google search or another search bar, and it finishes their search by auto-entering Ass or Asses.

Another example: "Senator" or "selling" They would get Sex slaves or sex xxx.

This is just because I love porno. Shout outs to sweet free pron. redtube.com and tube8.com

The only way I can see that happening is if your Firefox options is set for a 2GB cache. No browser, of its own files, is going to consume 2GB of hard dirve.

yeah, I adjusted the cache on mine to 2gb, but if would not reflect that in Add/Rmv, it's still under 24mb

I assumed it was an OS difference in reporting, as I am the only one I know to still run Win2K, lol.

I already have the Beta version of IE8 - but I still like FireFox more - it is simply moving faster !

In the advanced section, the Network tab, cache.

Default is 50mb, I run mine at 200 because I surf the Mars pic pages alot, seems to make it a bit smoother.

Damn .......... do you realize we've inadvertanly hijacked this thread?

OK I see that, my default is 50MB as well..well, I don't understand it then, It clearly says, under add/remove, on the mozilla 3 line, at the far right, 1.92 GB..if it's not the cache, I'd sure as hell like to know what it is

What you may not realize is that is not enough.

This information is stored in no less than 4 locations on your computer.

You need a good program or two to remove all traces.


I think you are using the term "information" in a too general kind of way. Cookies are for example only stored in one single location. Visited pages are stored in another very specific location. Saved passwords in another location. And so on.

It's still not anything new. You have this option now in IE7 - Tools, Internet Options, click the Delete button under Browsing History and then make sure all of the dialog boxes are checked that come up and click the Delete button at the bottom.

It deletes temporary internet files, cookies, your history, form data and passwords.

And yes, Firefox does have the same capabilities.

Amazing how the anti-Microsofties bash one company for doing something that another company like Firefox originally copied from them.

They know they are loosing their market share to FireFox, so they will try anything now to get them numbers back up. FireFox is growing a crazily huge fan base.


I have no idea where FireFox puts things and now IE will do the same.
At least now I know where IE puts web info and can erase it.
I ip block known bad sites, so no history or cookies or page.
In any case I fail to see the advantage.

Firefox is a wobbly piece of tud, IE8 with IE7Pro will beat it anyday, but you lot won't listen, you've listened to the much to all the media hype..

It will be the same as always as far as pedophiles are concerned. It sounds to me like all it does is clear the browser history, cookies, etc, for you, so you don't have to. In other words it makes it easier to hide the porn you looked at, from your friends and family.


I can't say I'm up on the latest technology from Microsoft, so I don't know what the credentials are for reading the data. Probably just another built in layer of data protection - that can easily be defeated by anyone with advanced skills. Maybe someone else can chime in, or I'll ask one of my friends that work for MS next time I have a brew with one of them.

On the conspiracy side:

How can it be the same as always, when I can clear my history with what I've used for the past 10 years? It's not the same as always, they are just trying to make it easier for the general computer user to keep his spouse or kids from seeing his browsing history while saving a secret copy in some hidden Dat file that can be revealed by LEO's with the right credentials.

LEO's & spooks make a few fake websites that their intended targets might be persuaded to visit by a few well placed adds, the fake (terrorist or illegal porn) sites leave a piece of code that activates the browser to begin secret logging of events and keeping them updated until they have enough data for a warrant.

The argument will be if you're not seeking any illegal information you will not be targeted. AKA - if you don't have anything to hide why should you care that Big Brother's watching you browse.
