What is a browser cache?
Your browser cache is a temporary storage location in your PC that contains files that are downloaded by your browser in order to display websites.

These files include any documents that make up a website such as:

  • HTML files
  • CSS style sheets
  • JavaScript
  • Graphical images
  • Multimedia content
