Overview of Browser Cache

Each  time you access a file through your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome), the browser caches or ‘stores’ it so it doesn't have to  keep retrieving the same files or images from the remote web site each time you  click Back or Forward. As a  practice, periodically  clearing the cache allows your browser to function  more efficiently.
