    I have a 56K dial-up connection and I know I am quite limited with surfing speed. I use IE6 and I have heard that there is a way... I believe it has something to do with CACHE, where you can go back to a web page you just were at a few minutes ago ... and ... instead of it taking forever to RE-LOAD, it will load in quickly.

    I don't mind a previously viewed page taking awhile to load if it is constantly updated, especially with a lot of images but I hate it when you have to wait for the exact same page to load in.... all over again.

    How can I improve this? Are there any browser settings or other settings somewhere in WIN98se that I should tweak? Or, perhaps there is some other program I could use to help me with this frustrating situation.

    Thanks in advance :)

    In IE, go to Tools > Internet Options and Settings.
    Where it says, Check for New versions of pages, what is checked and what is set as amount of disk space used for files??

    Thanks DEL.... OK, it is set to check for newer versions of pages EVERYTIME I START INTERNET EXPLORER.... also, there is 10MB set as the limit for temporary internet files, as was suggested by Brian (not sure) or someone on this site a couple of years ago.

    Does this tell you anything? Also... i have an option set somewhere to Delete all of my TIFs whenever IE is closed.

    Thanks again.
