I'm wondering if there is a way to disable all browsing-related drive access (history, cookie jar, disk caches) in either Firefox or Google Chromium (Linux).
Basically, I'm running this on a laptop, with wads of RAM, but often enough in an environment that triggers drive head protection - working from cars, working in industrial settings, etc. The continuous spin-up just to take note that I opened another tab.. is both time consuming and annoying (why is it synchronous with my activities in the first place?).
Before I go nuclear on the project and just dump .firefox / .cache on their own tiny ramdisk, any ideas? I think ChromeOS-based laptops do it somehow, but how?
