Description [src]

Specifies a usage model for WebViews.

Specifies a usage model for WebViews, which WebKit will use to determine its caching behavior. All web views follow the cache model. This cache model determines the RAM and disk space to use for caching previously viewed content .

Research indicates that users tend to browse within clusters of documents that hold resources in common, and to revisit previously visited documents. WebKit and the frameworks below it include built-in caches that take advantage of these patterns, substantially improving document load speed in browsing situations. The WebKit cache model controls the behaviors of all of these caches, including various WebCore caches.

Browsers can improve document load speed substantially by specifying WEBKIT_CACHE_MODEL_WEB_BROWSER. Applications without a browsing interface can reduce memory usage substantially by specifying WEBKIT_CACHE_MODEL_DOCUMENT_VIEWER. The default value is WEBKIT_CACHE_MODEL_WEB_BROWSER.
