Cache memory helps your web browser to load previously viewed webpages faster. It achieves this by storing some of the data in the temporary memory, avoiding the need to re-download it when you revisit the webpage. Cookies, on the other hand, store your personal information (like login details) when you visit a website. While some cookies may be necessary and help a great deal in getting rid of redundancies, there are a lot of additional cookies that a website may attach to your web browser. These cookies can track your online behaviour, anywhere from monitoring the products you view to tracking the time you spent on a particular webpage. Many regard this as a clear violation of privacy, and it is suggested you routinely clear all cookies from your web browser.
