I generally set konqueror web cache to 150MB *per user*. It makes quite a
difference in browsing speed, coupled with my on dns caching server and stop
kde looking for ipv6.
How much BW it saves, I don't know but speed is substantially better. I think
if one uses same browser all the time, just bumping the web cache should be
Of course, don't back it up. One day I wondered why my home dir was 500MB+
till I discovered web caches, font caches, google earth data etc. Back up is
no longer just tarring the home dir.. :(
