What are Temporary Internet Files?Temporary Internet Files, also known as the browser cache, contain web page content that is stored on your hard disk for quick viewing web pages. Temporary Internet Files allow browsers to download only the content that has changed since you last viewed a web page, instead of downloading all the content for a page every time it is displayed - so, the purpose of Temporary Internet Files is to speed up the loading of websites that you visit frequently by keeping copies of the web pages and graphics on your computer.
If you are using a shared or public computer, to protect your privacy, you may want to get rid of the Temporary Internet Files as they may contain information you may want to keep private.
