Precacher is an application or utility that downloads data in advance, in anticipation of use to enhance performance. For example, when a Web page is retrieved, the pages users typically jump to may be precached when they leave the page.

Caching is the process of collecting duplicates of original data values, that are then stored in a location that is easier to access for enhanced performance.
