WebCacheImageInfo is a simple tool that searches for JPEG images with EXIF information stored inside the cache of your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome), and
then it displays the list of all images found in the cache with the interesting information stored in them, like the software that was used to create the image, the camera model that was used to photograph the image,
and the date/time that the image was created.

Start Using WebCacheImageInfo
WebCacheImageInfo doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files.
In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - WebCacheImageInfo.exe
After running it, WebCacheImageInfo begins to scan the cache of your Web browser and displays every JPEG image with EXIF information found inside the cache.
You may need to wait up to a few minutes until the scanning process is finished.
After the scanning process is finished, you can also watch the image in the lower pane of WebCacheImageInfo, by selecting the desired item in the upper pane.
If from some reason WebCacheImageInfo fails to detect the cache of your Web browser properly, you can go to 'Advanced Options' window (F9), and choose the desired cache folders to scan
