In simplest words cache is your browser’s memory. It keeps previously visited websites data to make them load faster next time you visit.

This is an amazing behaviour and improves loading dramatically, but if you make any changes to the code of your website it’ll take some time for your browser to pick it up.

Cache is being cleared automatically after a certain amount of time, but you can do it manually to see your changes instantly.
