Let’s talk about clearing the cache. We’re not talking about that cash in your wallet- having too much of that is never a problem! We’re talking about web browser cache.
Web browsers have a cache that store some files and images to help websites load faster. However, sometimes clearing the cache can help if a website is not displaying properly or you’re experiencing some website glitches. For example, performance issues can occur if a website or app has been updated, but your cache is still storing the old version. You can also encounter issues when your cache has built up over time and is starting to use too much storage space.
Here are a few simple demos to show you how to clear the cache on Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge.
