Hi Darin,

Yes, I saw that when I was going through the code. But it is still
possible (please correct me if I am wrong here) to create a new Web
Context every time,say, a new window/tab is opened. And each web
context will have its own Web Process in such a case - all
communicating to the same 'UI Process'. So, my question was in
reference to such a use case. Right now, each web context (and hence
each Web Process) will have its own independent resource cache - right

Also, as and when a WebContext starts supporting multiple Web Process,
will there be single unified resource cache for each context shared
amongst all the web processes in that context ?

Thanks for your reply..
