Can I use all my RAM for application data?
When I do some stuff in background (unpacking, compiling, backup, etc.) my hdd is under load and for example, Firefox and Chromium take very long to start and react very slow.
While my hdd is under load I have still plenty of free RAM and free CPU.
How can I copy the whole Firefox or Chromium including all dependencies into RAM?
I don't care about persistence, I just want to view some websites, videos, etc.
There are instructions putting the cache into /dev/shm, but that didn't speed up so much. Getting the profile into the RAM drive might also be easy... But how to get the binaries with all dependencies into RAM?
