Home security Cache: Cache files are slowing down Google Chrome

Cache: Cache files are slowing down Google Chrome

Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers and is used by a large percentage of users. However, it has one major downside - it doesn't provide them users the ability to delete files from cache cache. That's about it Windows and MacOS. Specifically, in Windows, these files are in C: \ Users \\ AppData \ Local \ Google \ Chrome \ User Data \ Default \ Code Cache \ Js, while in macOS they are in ~ / Library / Caches / Google / Chrome / Default / Cache / Js.

Google Chrome

Indicatively, a user stated that in his main workhorse MacBook Pro uses recently discovered 124.000 files, dating from mid-2020 and ranging from a few hundred bytes up to a few hundred kilobytes. The entire folder is about 600MB in total. So he began to check if it was true that clearing the cache temporarily did not delete these files. He also noted that these files are slowing it down mode of Chrome and so he tried to delete them. He then noticed that Google Chrome started working faster after deleting these files. He then looked for ways to delete these files without having to "dig" into system files. What he discovered may "solve the hands" of many Windows users. In particular, he states that he has found a way that may sound strange. This mode includes installation of CCleaner Pro, which is not free, as well as the installation of a free additional third party called CCEnhancer and then use it to delete files from cache cache. As for macOS users, there is currently no way to clear cache cache. For these users, the only tool is the Finder.

Does clearing cache cache "hide" flaws?
So far, no disadvantages have been found in clearing cache cache, but caution should be exercised by any user attempting to do so, as unexpected problems may arise. Also, every time a user goes to delete files, there is a risk of deleting the wrong object, which can be harmful, especially for any user who does not have backup.

In short, Google Chrome can store hundreds of thousands of files on your computer, in cache cache, but it doesn't allow you to delete them. However, it seems that clearing this memory improves the performance of Google Chrome somewhat.
