4. What are tweaks number six and seven in toolbar popup UI?
Tweak number 6 is related to tab discarding. When you discard a tab, the browser memory that is dedicated to that specific tab will be released and therefore more RAM will be available for the browser to operate. This feature is important for slow machines or computers with low amount of memory. Tweak number 7 is for clearing the browser cache. Similar to the above mentioned item, clearing cache could also releases some unused memory and allows the browser to use a bigger portion of memory. Please note that these two tweaks are not check marks, but action buttons. Once you click on the button with circular cross-sign, it will rotate continuously till the action is completed. A notification popup will also show you a message once the operation is completed. Please note that, for tweak number 7, you can adjust the number of days that you need to clear the cache. Default value is 30 days.
