HTML5 Application Cache

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

  1. Offline Browsing:- Users can access the application in offline i.e when the internet disconnects suddenly.
  2. Speed:- Cached resources/ files always faster than the normal files.
  3. 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…
