LC 9 is a bit like a human being who has an appendix because millions of years ago his/her ancestors were eating a high fibre diet in the depths of the Pangean jungle: full of old, outdated stuff that has been overlooked in the relentess onward drive. Richmond. On Feb 5, 2017 8:18 PM, "William

I was thinking about some of the old deprecated/obsolete features (like the Resources), too. I think that some of those should be resurrected in 9, because they are things that a n00b might appreciate. Some of the SQL tools are one good example, like field binding. On Mon, Feb 6, 2017 at 5:47

Right. But that is the browser cache. If you are talking about a url resolving to a different site, that is a function of DNS, which is totally separate from the browser cache the browser maintains. I do not think the browser is capable of bypassing DNS caching. But maybe I misunderstand the
