Browser (classic interface)


The browser cache is a folder with copies of certain data (for example, images or music) from pages that you have visited. When you view these pages again, the browser does not download from the internet, but gets them from the cache instead. Using the cache reduces the network load and speeds up page loading.

Where can I find the cache?

The Yandex.Browser cache location depends on your operating system.
