Each time you click on a page on a website, your browser will keep a record of it. This means that other people may be able to look through your browser’s history and see which websites you have visited. It is advisable to clear your browser’s history to prevent anyone else seeing which websites you have accessed.
A browser’s history is a log of sites that you visit. When you press a browser’s Back button, you are moving back one entry in the history log. Browsers will normally clear the history at regular intervals, but you may want to clear it manually for privacy.
A cookie is a file created by a web browser, at the request of a web site, that is then stored on a computer. These files typically store user-specific information. Browsers will usually clear cookies that reach a certain age, but clearing them manually may solve problems with web sites or your browser.
Each time you access a file through your web browser, the browser caches (i.e. stores) it. By doing this, the browser doesn’t have to newly retrieve files (including any images) from the remote web site each time you click Back or Forward. You should periodically clear the cache for privacy and to allow your browser to function more efficiently.
