The main difference between Cache and Cookie is that, Cache is used to store online page resources during a browser for the long run purpose or to decrease the loading time. On the other hand, cookies are employed to store user choices such as browsing session to trace the user preferences.
In above diagram, we can see that there are two option checked (one is for cache and another is for cookie) to delete the cache and cookies from browser. There is another option Always clear this when I close the browser given to clear the caches and cookies automatically when both boxes are checked.
