Cache memory

When you see a website page, your browser keeps a version of that page and it is stored locally in your computer in the so called Cache Memory.

Then if you connection is slow or the Internet is busy and you request that page again, if it takes a long time to download, the browser takes the previous version stored in the Cache Memory.
