I have increased the cache size from 5000 KB (default) to 100 MB. Even then I do not see any change in performance. Am I making a mistake somewhere? I am using 05/12 nightly and I am yet to download 0.5.
What I expect is the following
1) If I disconnect the modem and do not close the browser, I should be able to see the cached pages by using the forward and back buttons (as applicable.). Now this happens randomly for some pages.

How does cache work in Phoenix? There is no option to set Memory Cache. Netscape 7.0 has this option.

Hoping to get my understanding clear.

Nope. AFAIK Phoenix does not support offline browsing at the moment.

There is no option to set Memory Cache. Netscape 7.0 has this option.

You simply have to add

// Specify the amount of memory cache in kilobytes:
user_pref("browser.cache.memory.capacity", 4096);

to your user.js.

Does Mozilla(1.2.1) or Netscape 7.0 support offline browsing?
I think offline browsing is an important feature.

I don't know. I don't use both of them.
Maybe this BugReport will help you: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171600

Yes, both of them.
