    Cache, History and Cookies

    My question;
    How often or if ever, should I clear these items?
    Is there any reason to perform this task, is it needed, do I need to clear all of these?
    If I do clear these, will it improve my Xoom performance, if I don't, what will I expect to see?
    My 3G Xoom is actually working very well but am curious what these things are used for.
    Thanks

    I have Dolphin HD set to clear all but my cookies on exit. I also downloaded 1Tap Cache cleaner from the market. I'm a firm believer in keeping the Xoom clean.

    Cache: Stores web content and images so they do not have to pulled from the internet every time you view the same page.
    History: A listing of the web pages visited using your browser
    Cookies: Information stored on your Xoom used to configure or personalize the web sites you visit frequently. (e.g. your username and password for this site)

    Clearing any of these is harmless other than the fact that you may have to download or provide more information the next time you visit a particular site. All of these are also used on desktop browsers in the exact same way..... we are not talking about anything Xoom specific here.
    Keep on Xoomin'

    Ya not wiping cache will allow web pages to load faster.
