Both will find all the "*.gif" or "*.jpg" or whatever files on your computer and both will display the images for you as you scroll through the file names.
Just go to "http://www.google.com" or "http://www.yahoo.com" to download the programs.

Changing Cache Settings
Firefox stores copies of frequently accessed pages in the cache. By doing this Firefox doesn't have to retrieve the page from the network each time you view the web page.
To set the size of the cache or to clear it (Windows and Unix only):
1. Select Tools > Options <snip>
2. Under the Privacy category, click Cache to expand the list.
3. Enter a number in the Use up to field to specify the size of the cache. 50MB to 70MB is a good size. To clear the cache immediately, click the Clear button to the right of the Cache category.
Important: A larger cache allows more data to be quickly retrieved, but more of your hard disk space is used.

In other words, a way to get the JPEG, GIF, PNG extensions to relate to the file names to just SEE them. I don't need their Key, their URL, their Size - I would just like to review all the images that are in my cache. Without their extensions the files are nearly useless.

2) With all the files lacking extensions there, sort the list by file size
3) Select the first 100 largest files (that are not index files)
4) Lets say that the 50th file is called 86F2D2A1d01 and is 58 KB
5) How would you now find out the file type for 86F2D2A1d01?
6) How can you do this for all 100 files?
7) How can you do this for the entire cache?
