The web cache stores certain information (HTML pages, images, cookies, etc.) for the webpages you visit on your computer or mobile device. That way the next time you visit the site will load faster. Sometimes these snapshots take up more space than you’d want and keep old unnecessary information that can cause lag in your browser.
You can resolve many browser issues simply by clearing your cache.
