QuickTip: How To Clear Your Cache

The cache is a local copy of the from a web page. Some of the text, images, and data from a site is stored to enable a quicker load time . It’s used by browsers to keep load times minimal, enabling pages to load without having to download all the information from scratch.

Clearing a browser cache deletes the data that your browser has stored on a website. This forces it to load a brand new version of the site, so that you can be sure that you’re seeing the most recent version.
