Chrome is invariably and undoubtedly the fastest and the most secure browser of the planet. There are a few things about Chrome Cache which I found out:
- The default interface of the browser does not have a provision to configure the folder for the cache.
- The default interface of the browser does not also have a provision to regulate the amount of disk space for the Cache. Hence if you have been using Chrome for a significant time you might encounter that the disk space has come down significantly.
For me after a few months of Chrome my disk space stood at 6 Giga bytes of cache usage.
- Your Chrome Cache is located in your use profile folder which would roughly correspond to C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\ (Instead of Users try ‘Documents and Settings’ on Windows XP systems.
- Chrome Cache Viewer: Nirsoft has brought out a very good nifty little tool to manage and have a sneak preview of what is there in Chrome Cache. You can grab a copy of the tool from here.
