Google Chrome 的 Cache Partition 生效

去年提到的「Google Chrome 要藉由拆開 HTTP Cache 提昇隱私」在最近推出的 Chrome 86 預設生效了:「Chrome changes how its cache system works to improve privacy」。

Google 的文章「Gaining security and privacy by partitioning the cache」這邊有提到不同瀏覽器都有打算要支援類似的架構,對應的差異:

Is this standardized? Do other browsers behave differently?

"HTTP cache partitions" is standardized in the fetch spec though browsers behave differently:

  • Chrome: Uses top-level scheme://eTLD+1 and frame scheme://eTLD+1
  • Safari: Uses top-level eTLD+1
  • Firefox: Planning to implement with top-level scheme://eTLD+1 and considering including a second key like Chrome

文章裡面看到了有趣的東西,是他提到了 Fetch 這個標準,然後是在「2.7. HTTP cache partitions」這邊出現了對應的說明:

To determine the HTTP cache partition, given request, run these steps:

Let key be the result of determining the network partition key given request.

If key is null, then return null.

Return the unique HTTP cache associated with key. [HTTP-CACHING]

所以看起來是訂 Fetch 時寫下一套方法,然後拿來擴大套用到整個瀏覽器...

Git 2.8 的平行下載 submodule 加速

Git 推出新版的時候,幾家 Git Hosting 都會撰文寫一些重要的進展,像是 GitHub 這次的內容:「Git 2.8 has been released」。

GitHub 這次說明平行下載的範例直接清楚表示出來功能:

git fetch --recurse-submodules --jobs=4

用 Google 找了一個 .gitmodules 裡面有很多筆的 repository 測了一下,的確是快了不少...
