Each time you browse a web page on your web browser, the browser caches it. The main purpose of cache is to make the next visit to the same page faster. Because your browser doesn’t have to newly retrieve files from the remote web sever when you visit the same page again in a short period or each time you click Back or Forward on your browser. Web browser cache takes space on your hard drive, also the browser cache might slow down the speed at which your browser can run, thus you should periodically clear the cache to allow your browser to function more efficiently.
