    Cache files are files that are stored either on your computer or in memory for quick access, when its cached you dont need to repetedly download the data.

    Cache- RAM memory that is set aside as a specialized buffer storage that is continually updated; used to optimize data transfers between system elements with different characteristics http://www.dictionary.com

I know you all...[/gloworange]

    Pronounced cash, a special high-speed storage mechanism. It can be either a reserved section of main memory or an independent high-speed storage device. Two types of caching are commonly used in personal computers: memory caching and disk caching
    Memory caching is effective because most programs access the same data or instructions over and over
