Further Speed Improvements

I have decided to turn on caching to full throttle.

This means that I don't request the browser any more to check back with blummy.com (to see if something has changed in the configuration) when you click on your blummy bookmarklet. So if you have high latency times between you (e.g. when you are living on the opposite site of the planet) and blummy.com this will most probably be good for you.

The bad side — and that's why I haven't done this before — is that you might run into a stale copy of blummy more easily when you do some re-configuration. So here are two hints if you don't see what you have configured:

  • Delete the blummy bookmarklet and re-drag it from the configuration page. There is a little random value that should prevent a stale copy.
  • Clear your browser cache.

I hope that you encounter a further speed increase with blummy and keep on spreading the word ;)
