I'm on a slightly flaky connection and I'm trying to improve my browsing experience with the use of a local proxy. According to my research, however, if I hit 'enter' in my browser on an existing URL, it'll send a
Cache-Control: max-age=0 header to the proxy, which will, in turn, make round-trips to the server to revalidate the content.
I don't particularly want this; if the object is stale, the cache will re-fetch it, but if it's not stale I don't see why I'd want the object revalidated every freakin' time. If I suspect the page is old, I've got shift-F5 and I'm not afraid to use it.
So, is there a tunable somewhere behind the scenes in Chrome that'll turn this annoying behaviour off?
