About Browser Cache:

When using the Internet, a cache on your computer stores copies of web pages you have visited in order to increase retrieval time in the future. These storage areas called caches (pronounced ‘cash’) are intended to make Internet browsing faster. However, if you don’t clean your browser’s cache regularly, the files that accumulate can cause errors in your browsing experience. You should clean your browser cache about once a week to help your computer run at top speed.
