What is an internet browser's cache?
Normally your internet browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, etc.) downloads web pages and some to all of it's content to your computer usually in the folder Temporary Internet Files. This is the browser's cache. When you visit a webpage with files already downloaded in the cache, it will use them to load the page instead of re-downloading the page again. This allows the page to load faster and save some data from downloading.
Sometimes the cache can interfere with the normal use of the webpage and it needs to be cleared to be able to use it as intended.
