What is Cache?
Cache is a type of memory that stores frequently visited web pages and other internet data. When you visit a website, the browser saves some of the data from that website in the cache memory. The next time you visit that website, the browser can retrieve the data from the cache, making the website load faster.
Why Clear Cache?
Clearing your cache can help speed up your internet browsing experience. Over time, the cache can become cluttered with outdated data, causing the browser to slow down. Clearing the cache can also help fix issues with web pages not loading correctly.
