On my Mac IIsi (System 7.5.3, 17 m RAM+RAM Doubler, Netscape cache 6 m, disk cache 1536k) lists of URL's take vast amounts of time to load into Netscape 3.0, either from the net, or from disk.  By 'vast' I mean 5 -15 mins for a list of 300 URLs--a 20k file.  Why is this so slow, and can I speed it up? It's especially iritating to follow a link, then have to wait five - 10 mins for the list to redisplay.

The problem is probably related to RAM doubler and the amount of RAM netscape is given. Even if you give Netscape tons of RAM, it will be reading the files off disk because of RAMDoubler. Try giving Netscape tons of RAM (11 megs) without RAM Doubler, and it should work fine.

This problem is unrelated to your disk cache setting in Netscape.
