Cache definition and its important?Browser caching stores webpage files on a local computer usually in your computer driver or mobile's phone storage as cache, when a user visits a webpage. So when next time user again visit to your website/blog, browser open your blog and cache file too. Result is fast loading of your website. Cache file not always available for browser, there is self destruction command on cache file. Thus cache file expired in 3 days (as user defined time).
Can i control cache in browser/blogger?
Yes! yes you can control your cache file. If you want to control or modify the time of destruction you have to understand a new term called Leverage?
"Leveraging" browser caching is when a webmaster has instructed browsers how their resources should be dealt with.
In simple word leverage means how longer your cache will available for browser? When a web browser displays your webpage it has to load several things like your logo, your CSS file, and other resources.
When you leverage browser caching, your webpage files will get stored in the browser cache. Your pages will load much faster for repeat visitors and so will other pages that share those same resources. If you have tested your blogger for speed and found out that you need to leverage browser caching, (if you not tested your blog speed test it) now in here is how you do it.
