Chrome Deleting Browser Cache

General Information

The basic function of a browser is to connect to the websites server, download the internet files and display them to the users. Browser cache is a temporary internet files folder. It stores web pages, images, CSS, audio, video and other downloaded content for faster display of webpages the next time you visit those websites. The information stored in browser cache is sometimes incomplete or corrupt which makes clearing cache of a browser an important step in diagnosing website problems.
