The Second Life browser.  I was able to tweek some of the cache and connection settings to get a more acceptable performance, but despite that, it looks like it is not using the disk cache effectively and insists on downloading content that should already be in the cache.

You are not clear in what you are asking, as evidenced by the responses.

If you mean the VIEWER, click it's HELP->ABOUT... and copy/paste that information in with your request for help. The EDIT mode can be found in OPTIONS in the upper right of the post.

If you actually do mean a browser, this is the wrong place to ask...

There are currently 6 versions of the Linden made viewer. We'll guess you are using the main release 4.0.1-310054. But, without knowing we can only guess. If that guess is right, you might want to try one of the RC viewers. You can find the 'official alternates' the Release Candidates (RC) here: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Alternate_Viewers

I suggest you try the HTTP candidate. BUT... before you install it, go into your viewer's Preferences in SETUP and check/enable: Willing to update to release candidates. Otherwise, the automatic update process will attempt to revert you to the main release.

Also, DO NOT CLEAR YOUR CACHE!!! You just make a slow system worse. The viewer uses an indexed cache. So, a full cache is way faster than an empty cache. As an empty cache fills it has to download, decrypt, and index the files. If the file is cached the index points to it and all your viewer has to do is open the file.

Three or four years ago we had an older cache system and clearing the cache could improve performance. Lots of people are that far behind and still think clearing the cache is a good idea. It isn't.

You can also test your connection to SL servers. Something along your network path may be failing.  See: http://blog.nalates.net/2011/10/26/troubleshoot-your-sl-connection/
