When someone visits a website on any device the website needs to load all files and resources associated with it which includes images, CSS files, javascript files, and the logo, this can be time-consuming if the website is large and has a lot of content. Browser caching stores a copy of some of the important files and resources so that when someone lands on the homepage and navigates to other pages there wont be a need to load the same files and resources over and over again. because it can pull the files from the stored cache
