  1. So having moved a bunch of our clients across to Google Apps for Work, we started testing performance of Gmail using a RAM disk for Chrome caching where Gmail has been installed as an "add to desktop" app on Win 10. The improvement is very noticeable; basically flicking between emails and different folder views feels instantaneously when the ram disk in use. But when turned off the latency, albeit milliseconds is felt (we even ran a double blind test here to make sure of no bias!) This is basically the last little step to getting "desktop-like" performance out of web based applications.
  2. We live in the Chrome browser ecosystem (Gmail, Docs, etc etc). A "1-click" option to load Chrome via Dimmdrive and *force* Chrome cache to save to Dimmdrive would be huge for us, and a lot of other business users. Then the final piece would be auto-saving that cache on exit and reloading on resume.
  3. Hey Tim - wondering if this ever progressed for Chrome, would gladly pay for a second licence to use it
  4. Hi - wondering if anyone has had success using Chrome Browser with the Dimmdrive 2.0? Specifically auto-copying across the cache files and forcing Chrome to actually keep using that cache location on the ramdisk. I can get Chrome launching from within the Dimmdrive ramdisk, but the caches will always stay on the default install location on the OS drives.
  5. But really just a minor issue. Use a template version until there's a good indication that the product is viable and cashflow sufficient then update/customize as needed. What about a Indigogo campaign to extend the app? Possibly quick access to another tech-early-adopter market and one that is more aligned with the Steam focus of the current product.
  6. Hi, Love the product concept and I think there's also a good opportunity to also target developers & internet marketers who spend all of their working day in Chrome and use Gmail. These guys are the early-adopter-speed-freaks who are buying with business dollars and for whom $30 is a no-brainer. Possibly even consider a slightly higher-price point and free-trial/nusance-ware version for these customers. Sooooooo - just wondering where the chrome cache update is at? I noticed a few kind of "coming soon" announcements around January. I've followed the steps to force Chrome Cache to load in E:/Browsercache but it looks like it isn't always reliable. Also - the entire "user-data" folder would be useful sitting in the Ramdrive and not just the user-cache. Also - it is not clear that the local database that Gmail relies on is saved to the browsercache - I have a feeling Gmail might be saving that elsewhere on the OS drive. Finally - a clever feature would be to save that ramdisk to drive on shutdown and auto-reload into ramdisk on restart. The other market worth considering a solution for is Dragon Naturally Speaking - again there is a whole community obsessed with optimizing the crap out of product to maximise Dragons' response time.
