The cache is a so-called “buffer memory”. This allows access to a background medium. When a web page is accessed repeatedly, data stored in the cache allows the web page to open faster because the data has already been retrieved, processed and stored in the so-called “buffer memory”. Cached data can include text, images, and other types of media.
The cache stores data that is accessed frequently in a location that can be accessed faster than RAM. This helps to increase the speed of your device because the data can be accessed more quickly.
There are two types of cache: hardware cache and software cache. Hardware cache is built into the hardware of the CPU, while software cache is created by the operating system or software programs. Both types of cache memory improve the speed of load operations by storing frequently accessed data so that it can be retrieved quickly.
Since the cache only has a limited amount of memory available, it is advisable to clear the cache regularly. Also, the memory of the device used is consumed when storing the information.
