in computer terms a cache is a type of temporary storage. Your computer's cache stores information about whatever program you're running. Cache memory usually runs at a higher speed than a hard disk so that this information can be accessed quickly.

Yahoo's cache is a copy of the web page stored on yahoo's server. It's useful if the page doesn't work as you can still access yahoo's copy.

It highlights the words that you typed into the search engine. So lets say you searched for Fall Out Boy Lyrics. If you click on the cached webpage, the words fall, out, boy, and lyrics will all be highlighted each with a different color. It makes things easier to find if there is a lot of stuff on the page that you don't want to comb through to find where what you're searching for is mentioned.

A cache is a hiding place. So, if something is cached it means it is hidden. :)

It's when your computer stores a duplication of the original values from a website that you visit.Once something's cached,you should be able to acess the site faster since your computer can just take the data from the cache instead of recomputing all of it.
