Default cold crashing

i am confused on this subject, does cold crashing clear your beer, make it taste better, i am looking to start doing cold crashing but need a quick explanation on this subject.
thank you all for your support and knowledge

Both.

Cold crashing drops the yeast out of suspension clarifying it which also improves the taste to a small degree.

usually cold crashing is done in a secondary (not always) and is 1-3 days long. That would be a lot of ice
