Cache that accumulates will only cause the browser to be slow, besides that storage space can also be drained due to this. The average browser on a device caches files around hundreds MB without realizing.

The cache files include various static files, such as Picture, Javascript, CSS, Fonts, and others contained on a website. And deleting it also doesn’t have any effect on the website, because later the file will be re-downloaded and become a cache file again.
