Cache: saved elements from those sites. This may include pictures, cookies, etc. The cache makes loading the webpage faster the next time to go to it.
Cookies: small pieces of data about you saved in your browser. Cookies let the website keep track of some of your activities, such as your login information. This way you can log into a site (like the Library) one time, instead of every time you open new page. Cookies reduce privacy, but aren't a computer virus.
