!Cache is not NetSurf-specific. The control settings are in each
application that uses it.
Ah, Netsurf choices--cache. Disc cache size is set at 1024M

seem to be defaults, because I have never altered them.
Don't recall any discussion or explanation when Netsurf adopted !Cache
-- when was that? Maybe it happened while I was away and I missed it.
It happened when Vince implemented disc caching :) This was some time
ago, perhaps even before our last stable release. If that's the case,
the last release announcement would have included a mention. If it
isn't, then it'll be mentioned via version control for our test builds.
!Cache, according to its helpfile, was written by Adam Richardson
("Snowstone") in 2007. The current version 1.13 on his website has a
runfile dated 2007-june-14. The runfile of my active copy in Boot
Resources (which presumably came with a recent-ish version of Netsurf
inside its usual boot-update file) is dated 2014-09-16, but !Sidediff
shows it is identical to the 2007 runfile.
Time stamps on files are advisory, not gospel. :) The 2014-09-16 is
probably when you merged your first build of NetSurf that included it.
