Is it a good ideea to mount TMPS via Fstab?

I noticed this line was missing from fstab so I added it:

tmpfs   /tmp         tmpfs   nodev,nosuid          0  0

Is it a good idea. I want my apps to start faster but they somehow seem to start slower...I'm using Plasma btw.
Thank you.

This uses your RAM as /tmp and it's way faster than using a HDD or even a SSD. If you don't use /tmp for user stuff (i.e. temporary downloads and such), the RAM usage is negligible and not causing adverse effects even in low-RAM systems.
