Autosave Extension Page
Autosave is a small extension, which can be used to store the currently shown document in a seperate directory automatically when browsing a certain site. You may configure the sites, where all pages will be stored to cache, by adding them to a list. The documents are stored as html-text only (no embedded objects like pictures etc.)
The files are cyclic reused, e.g. if you set the cache size to 100, Autosave will store the document contents to X:\MyCache\Autosave_1.html ... AutoSave_100.html and start again with AutoSave_1.htm when the 101st page is browsed.
A small Icon in the statusbar will change its colour each time to indicate a page was written.
The browser cache of Mozilla is difficult to read. I use a tool to scan certain cached pages, but failed to do it with Mozilla (Opera and Internet Explorer store the pages 'as gotten from WWW' and can more easily be parsed). To circumvent this problem, i wrote this extension, my scanner now looks in the AutoSave-Cache for new files and parses them as it does with IE/Opera cached Pages.
Autosave has been tested with
This version does not work with Netscape. Although it installs, the settings
can not be changed.
At least, Netscape 8.1 will cause problems here and you cannot close he extension dialog after pressing 'options'.
If anybody is able to fix this or can point out the problem, please mail to RedFraggle@Herr-der-mails.de
