> I encourage anyone who wants to see the benefit of having a tmpfs in RAM to try relocating the firefox profile to a tmpfs (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Firefox_Ramdisk). The difference is quite impressive, even though I have a latest generation SSD.
It might be a good idea to save some SSD writes, but does it really increases performance? My ~/.mozilla profile is about 2GB, so it was not a good idea to put it in RAM, but I tried that with a new empty profile and noticed no difference. What should I look at?
PS: it's not related to the /tmp dir, I assume, but it's still interesting to see some tmpfs benefits for a popular application.
