how is cache stored in mozilla?

I realised that when a new page is accessed by a web-browser the page is stored in cache of the web-browser.
i tried to understand the cache files created .. but could not understand that which file was created for which site..
Can anybody plzz tell me which cache file the browser accessses when user presses the back button or something of that sort to acccess a site that is already in the cache.
Is this dependent of the browser ??

But yes depending on your browser the cache files are created differently.
You can download program that will let you view your cache and history easily. just search google.

When in Mozilla here's a trick:

type "about:cache" in the location bar and press enter.

This will bring you to an internal page giving you info about the
memory and disk caches and let you view a list of what is in them.
