What is Application Cache?
HTML5 introduces application cache, which means that a web application is cached, and accessible without an internet connection.
Advantages of Application Cache
- Offline Browsing:- Users can access the application in offline i.e when the internet disconnects suddenly.
- Speed:- Cached resources/ files always faster than the normal files.
- Reduced Server Load:- Browsers will load the cached files first, if the file version was different with the server/ the specified file was not available on cache then it will download from the server.
Application cache plays major role in Mobile Web Applications, online exam portals etc…
