How To Clear The Cache in Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer (Part 1 of 2)
“Cache” is basically everything that you have browsed and searched/found online; everything you have downloaded, all images, sounds and so on, has been stored in something in your computer called Temporary Internet Files, and when clearing it, your computer will get rid of all the clutter.
