    Setup

    The add-on offers a number of options, which will be explained below. 

    Click on the button to the add-on, a window that lets you control important parameters will appear. First off, it is necessary to enter the respective username or the name of the desired surflink in the field Your Login Name.

    Login Name: Username5
    Surflink Name: Userame5.Example

    More infos regarding the administration of the surflinks can be found in the members area by clicking on Traffic Exchange and Surflinks.

    Settings

    The add-on allows you to automatically clean your browser's cache and cookies. The actions will be repeated after a predefined timeframe, which can be set by the user. It is possible to choose from the following parameters: every 6 hours, daily, weekly, monthly.

    Cache-Cleaner

    Definition

    Web Cache: A web cache is a mechanism for the temporary storage (caching) of web documents, such as HTML pages and images, to reduce bandwidth usage, server load, and perceived lag. A web cache stores copies of documents passing through it; subsequent requests may be satisfied from the cache if certain conditions are met. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_cache

    Deleting the web cache has the advantage that the browser collects less data and infos. It is therefore likely to remain more stable and more resistent against crashes. 

    Please bear in mind that this feature deletes the entire cache/cookies and thus also the data of those websites that have been accessed outside of eBesucher.

    Cookie-Cleaner

    Definition

    A cookie, also known as an HTTP cookie, web cookie, or browser cookie, is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while the user is browsing that website. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the website of the user's previous activity.[1] Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information (such as items in a shopping cart) or to record the user's browsing activity. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie

    By deleting the cookies on a regular basis, the performance of the browser can be affected in a positive way. In addition, it is recommended to delete the cookies in order to protect your privacy. It allows you to prevent unwanted advertising to be displayed in your browser.
