Does anybody know if the browser stores a website's css files in cache or only executes it immediately. Why? Well, I want to create a website with php and use only one css file for all my pages ... so ... if the browser stores the css in the "client" computer and uses it for other pages then it is a very good optimization if not then I have to make more files depending on the complexity.
So ... is the browser of "today" capable of storing the css files in cache or only processes and displays the result for every page?

Yes, I've had issues where I had to shift-reload a page or clear a cache after updating css. So absolutely .css files are cached, or at least some browsers cache them.
