Browse all the images you saw on the internet with ImageCacheViewer

The content of some websites is saved in a local cache on the first visit to speed up future access to specific resources.

A site’s logo can be downloaded from the local cache instead of having to be reloaded on every page load on a site that uses it.

This saves bandwidth and speeds up browsing by reducing the number of remote requests.

What this also means is that you can browse those local caches, for example to save content to another location.

Since caches are temporary in nature, the contents will eventually be cleared so that they are no longer accessible.

You can browse Internet caches manually or use a program to do so. The newest program from Nirsoft ImageCacheViewer is a program that you can use for that.

The program is very similar to WebCacheImageInfo, and the main difference between the two is that it is not limited to images with EXIF ​​information.

All you need to do is download and extract the program to use it. When you start it, you will notice that it automatically fills the contents of the cache from the last day.

Some browsers may not be listed as the program only tracks the default cache folders of each browser. If you don’t use a local cache, use portable browsers, or secondary installations, images may be missing.

You can open options by tapping F9 or selecting Options > Advanced Options to set custom cache folders or prevent a particular browser from scanning.

This makes it easy to add support for a portable browser you’re using, for example, or a secondary browser profile that uses a different cache directory.

Here you can also change the included time period from 1 day to another period using days, hours or minutes as values, or disable it completely.

The last option provided here is to limit the images to select URLs. For that, it uses a comma-delimited list, so that the program only displays the images that match the selected time period and URLs.

You can browse all the images with your mouse or keyboard, and when you select an image, it is displayed as a preview in the program window.

For each image, its URL, name, and content type are displayed, as well as the time, file size, file name, and browser. You can sort the list by clicking on one of the table headers, for example to sort the images from largest to smallest, or by time period.

What you can’t do here, and this is unfortunate in my opinion, is move or copy images from the cache to another location on your hard drive.

You can open the URL in a web browser to display it there again, or use the path and filename information to find the file locally, but that’s not very convenient.

This makes the program more of an image viewer than a program you can use to cache images from the Internet. It is possible to save information about the selected images, but that is done by creating a text, csv, html or xml file.


If you want to search for cached images on the Internet, the program will come in handy for that purpose. However, it falls short on extra features like copying images to another location on the drive, which limits it a bit.
