10.5: View cached content for some browsers Web Browsers
Many people may not be aware that when visiting web pages that feature graphics, audio, and video, that much of this stuff ends up in an oddly-numbered file in your browser's cache folder. (You can find these folders in your user's Library/Caches folder.)

Today, I discovered that Leopard's Finder can now actually display much of this cached content in the Preview area of a Finder window (or via Quick Look), rather than just showing a generic document icon.

[robg adds: This works for cache files from Camino and Firefox, but not Safari -- Safari now stores its cache in a single .db file, instead of a number of independent files. Many cache files won't preview, but those with graphics, audio, or video seem to work fine.]
