Chromium's Cache on tmpfs

As part of the "Chrome migration", in order to use the newly acquired Chromecast, installed Chromium on my "new"Dell XPS.
Since the lappie uses a SSD, I've moved Chromium's cache to the system's tmpfs file system, actually the /tmp directory, which I have already set it up right from the get go.

The thing is pretty straight forward, since the lappie already has a working tmpfs, of course...
Matter of fact, all it takes is to launch the browser with a flag, which I added the option to the launch icon/ script on XFCE, the whole command looks like this:

chromium-browser --disk-cache-dir=/tmp/cache %U
