I want to search for some cached MP3 files in the cache folder but cannot find it... I've searched online for 10mins but the result I got is all about how to clear cache. I want to know where is the cache folder of Safari in Mountain Lion...

Thanks for your help

The cache is here:

/Users/<userid>/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari

But the only thing you're likely to find there is a Cache.db file. If you're comfortable with databases, that's a SQLite3 file you can open with sqlite3, which ships with your mac.

But in my quick tests, it doesn't look like it caches external files like MP3.

You might want to try SafariCacheExplorer. Not free; but the demo (good for 5 uses) very nicely enumerated my cache. No mp3 files, though.
