[feature] Adblock checks for dates before downloading

Postby fanboy » Mon Aug 06, 2012 1:22 pm

Cloudflare now supports caching, however if the site goes down... it'll use 3 day old cache. Which made me think, to avoid serving potentially 3-day old cache...

Would it be possible if Adblock would check the dates before downloading, if the local version, is newer than the server version, don't download? But don't error, just queue up for another day? (+1 day)?

I don't expect huge outages, but its more avoiding people getting 3day old lists.

Though if you have 2 commiters, 1 on the other side of world on a different timezone.. it could create problems, though I'm sure theres a way around that .

Just an idea/thought.
