Cache & Cookies
Cookies are files that are created after visiting websites. They are designed to better your online experiences by saving browsing data, decreasing the amount of time it takes to load the pages in the future. After the caches / cookies have been cleared from the web browser, some settings on certain websites are deleted. For example, if you were signed to some websites, you will be required to sign back in after the data is cleared.
Caches are what remember certain elements of the pages you visit, like images, and help with the total amount of time it takes to load them again on your future visits.
Clearing the cache, and cookies, will remove settings that were previously in place. For example, if you were signed in to some websites, you will be required to sign back in on your next visit. Once cleared, you should see an improvement in website load times, and web browser performance in general.
