Asking in Questions, I hope I don't know how to do it but it is possible.
For a Feed configured with Properties->Display->Show news' description instead of loading web page I'd like to preload/cache all the external images referenced in the feed.
So basically when I start going through all the new items in the feed there won't be the slight delay for every item, when the external images are loaded. Pre-loading could happen at feed refresh, when the single feed is opened for reading, or manually (action, button). I know some caching is already going on, because if I open an item I have the delay (pics are downloaded), then change news item, go back to the first one the display is immediate (no download delay).
Of course I realize this means
- all images will be download, even for news items I won't read
- network activity burst
- possibly memory/db size burst
- some usual scheme for purging the cache will be needed - I suppose that's already happening in the internal browser
Is this already possible? If not I'll just go and repost in the Feature Request Forum Section
