Default Caching feature

Allthough i love the new caching system, i feel there is missing one thing in it . I'd very much like to see an option to see the cache (and being able to browse the cache) *only* while transferring (and possibly when getting disconnected too). So FlashFXP would cache everything but not using it, and put it to use in the two mentioned occasions. This would make it much easier to see new directories created etc. Perhaps a nice idea?

Sounds nice as long as its an option rather than the default behavior.

why make it an option? why not make it totally transparent for the user?
if it's always on, file browsing is always active...user doesn't really need to concern themself with it.

Because most people use the caching in order to speed up switching between directories... not for the purpose of offline browsing. Its a nice idea, but i doubt the majority want it to work the way just suggested. So making such behavior transparent to the user is a bad idea.

It seems to me that the main purpose of the caching feature when originally designed was to speed up switching between directories, to do what was suggested without the ability to change that behavior would kinda defeat its initial purpose.
