In this paper, the authors propose a cache strategy which is suitable for decentralized structure Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks. In their cache strategy, each peer will maintain a list regarding the previous search results. Each peer can reduce most research times by exploring its list and enhance query efficiency. The use of P2P applications is growing dramatically, particularly for sharing files and software. With recent widespread deployment of P2P technologies, P2P computing is attracting increasing attention. Many P2P systems have emerged recently as platforms for users to search and share information over the Internet.
