Change cache folder



  • Re: RAM cache
    I found Vivaldi new browser today and start try and is I see this is awesome browser.
    But when I search for cache folder and try to change it to RAM Disk I see that is impossible. Sh..t
    I must stop use this browser cuz we cant change cache folder location. That is important for me.
    And I hope devs do something soon about this and must peoples need possibility to change cache folder location.
    Sry for my bad english.



  • @strikbi You don't mention your Operating system
    For windows try (disclaimer: I haven't used this myself)
    https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/2446/how-to-change-the-cache-folder
    and https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/8237/set-cache-size



  • The switch method is one of several solutions mentioned there, though that has the problem of requiring you to run the browser from a shortcut which you've modified with the switch. That's not always the case, as the browser can start via other means.

    The portable install is probably the simplest sure bet, though a RAM disk or symlink are also popular.

    This is one feature that should be in preferences though, along with the size.



  • @strikbi -- ...& further to TbGbe's advice, for Linux this works fine for me:

    Launch V [SS in this case] with this option: --disk-cache-dir=/tmp/vivaldi-snapshot-cache ... having already setup /tmp to run as a ram-drive by this line in fstab: tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0

    Quite a long time ago i had a similar enquiry to yours; the fstab part was easy [& benefits my whole computer experience, not only my browsers], but i couldn't see how to force V to use it for cache. Wise & kind community members here educated me. If you hang around here, you'll enjoy not only a fabbo browser, but also a nice community.

    Not sure what you mean?
    There is no "portable install" of Vivaldi. There is a standalone install but that just uses folders under the install directory, there is no "unplug" and its gone.
