How to edit the content type / Mime type of a windows azure blob content?
Blogged a Follow up post on the series ‘Hosting a static website in windows Azure blobs’
Alternatively, Azure blobs can be used to store contents too. For eg. a video can be stored in blobs and since a URI is provided for a blob content, a website hosted somewhere else (say a website hosted in web role) can access the video through the URI.
Also, I found this blog post by John Viele where he shows he hosted “static” aspx web pages in Azure Blog Storage: http://jvshangout.wordpress.com/2012/02/17/virtualpathprovider-for-windows-azure-hosting-aspx-web-pages-in-blob-storage/

in the new realse we have :
Performance improvements: With the addition of a local temporary cache and optimized network bandwidth utilization, users should see significantly lower initial load times. When the new portal first loads, it prompts users to increase the local storage amount. Sensitive data is not stored in the local temporary cache so there are no security risks
where can i read about it and about the calculation of it?
i believe you are referring to Azure portal updates [july 2011], i am not aware of any official document that compares the performance. But i know that the local temp cache is not utilized when you are browsing in “in private” mode. so you can try comparing the performance of in private mode vs normal browsing mode. But it will be difficult to benchmark the performance.
