Let's begin with "What is Cache???" Cache is pronounced [kash] or "cash". The general definition of cache is (from Dictionary.com):
1.a hiding place, esp. one in the ground, for ammunition, food, treasures, etc.: She hid her jewelry in a little cache in the cellar.
Ok, great! But what does this mean in terms of our computers? Let me start by saying that computers don't have basements, ammunition, food, treasures, and computers don't wear jewelery (well most computers don't wear jewelery, but they may cost more than jewelery). And Cache does NOT effect your bank account or wallet!
Caching is used to make things work faster....
