Internet & Networking The second generation of OSNews' mobile web site is now up and running. The new version has an even simpler design than before which makes it much easier to render on under-featured HTML browsers, usually found on phones, PDAs or other embedded devices. The new design does not display any ads or a sidebar, but goes directly to the "meat" of the information. Read more for info & screenshots.

Efficient use of cache space
by Daniel van Eeden on Sat 28th Feb 2004 11:29 UTC

With AvantGo for Palm it's posible to 'sync' a page for offline use. With al linkdepth of one it will not only cache the article but also the printer friendly version. It's not very common to connect a palm to a printer so it's mostly useless to cache the printer friendly version. Some articles are split into 4 pages. I can only read the first page (remember the linkdepth) of such articles. The solution is to read the cached priter friendly version.

The solution is to only provide printer friendly (read one page) versions of articles to mobile users to keep the cache and required linklevel low.
