3 – Application cache
Every Web browser has a built-in cache that stores recently visited web pages. This means the same pages and assets will load faster the next time the browser returns. It enables the browser to make all cached resources available in offline mode. Our website uses the HTML5 application cache. By the use of application data cache we can enable our website to run without an internet connection and improve the performance of the application by enabling faster loading of content. You can choose to remove your browser’s cache in your browser settings. Clearing your browser’s cache and cookies means that website settings will be deleted and our website and especially our mobile site might appear to be a little slower because all of the images have to be loaded again.
