ChromeCacheView is a portable tool which reads the contents of Google Chrome's cache and lists them in a table.

The elements displayed include URL, Content type, File size, Last accessed time, Expiration time, Server name, Server response, and more.

Click the "Last accessed" column and you're able to view a timeline of recently-viewed sites. That's handy if you're trying to understand someone else's browser usage, as you can get a basic picture without having to launch the browser yourself (that may leave traces which give your snooping away).

The program can help you understand more about what's going on under the hood of your browser. Avira Password Manager was installed on our test system, and ChromeCacheView regularly recorded the results of 15-20 Avira-related web queries in succession. Does that matter? We don't know, but if the browser seemed slow or unstable, that kind of detail may provide important clues.

Select one or more items in the list and you could easily copy those files to another folder, or open a URL in the browser.

As usual with NirSoft tools, you're also able to save the cache list to an HTML or TXT report.

A command-line interface enables automating many of these actions. Run ChromeCacheView from a USB key, for instance, and you could copy all the files of a particular content type (MP4, JPG, PNG, whatever) from the cache to a folder on the key.

Verdict:

You can browse Chrome's cache from within the browser or by using Explorer, without having to install any additional software. ChromeCacheView does provide more details and options, though, and it can be useful as a way to check what someone else is doing online.
