Why should you delete urls, cache, cookies from your search history?

Typed URLs – Whenever you enter a URL in the search bar, it automatically stores the link in Windows Registry. After some point, it stacks a list of URLs in the registry and takes up space. These should be cleared time to time to clear unwanted data.

Cache – You've heard the word cache before, but don't know exactly what it means in context of the Web. In common parlance, caching means placing something in storage (usually in secret) on the chance that it may come in useful later (e.g. a weapons cache). A browser or Web cache does exactly that, except with program and website assets. When you visit a website, your browser takes pieces of the page and stores them on your computer's hard drive. Some of the assets your browser will store are: Images - logos, pictures, backgrounds, HTML, CSS, JavaScript etc.

In short, browsers typically cache what are known as "static assets" - parts of a website that do not change from visit to visit.
