- by reikred, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5When I click on the Textarea Cache addon icon, addon should immediately save the text area (if any) of the active tab. Why? Because the exact timing of saves has been unpredictable, and I have experienced that the TaC is not up to date when I needed it to be. That is, I lost some typed text by some misfortune. Otherwise a great addon.

- by Firefox user 13697751, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Like many others, I found this by searching for a replacement for Lazarus (RIP). While it doesn't yet measure up to Lazarus, from what I can tell it's one of the only alternatives available. I can't for the life of me understand why there aren't more options for form saving since every single one of us has wished for it at one time or another.
I don't yet know whether Textarea Cache will save me when I need saving. I won't know that until I've accidentally closed the browser or lost a form, and need to recover my text. But it seems like a good start, and I'm happy there is at least one dev working on this.
Wildsky: you seem to be updating this often, and responding to comments/reviews as well, so I can only hope that you stick with this project and that it continues to improve. Cheers!
- by Shalmirane, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Works for me as expected on 64bit FF54 @ 64bit Win10. Replaced unfunctional Lazarus with it.
I'm missing feature of automatic cache clearing, configurable if possible, about 24 hours if just on/off.
After some time, that cache gets really long.
Future developement beyond that? Inspire with Lazarus and choose what to port :)
