For those of you who don’t know, cache is the data that your web browser records every time you visit a website. This is done in order to reduce the time that the website takes to load on the web browser the next time you visit it. This means, whenever you visit a particular website, the web browser will show you the data, such as the home page of the website, that it collected the first time you visited it. While this is good as it speeds up your overall experience, it can also lead to your web browser or your device to slow down. Also Read - iPhone 13 is now effectively available at Rs. 65,900
