How To Clear Your Browsers Cache

Sometimes after we do some work on a clients website, when they go to view it, they cant see the changes that we have made. We then get a call or an email saying “Hey, we cant see any changes, what’s going on?”.

When this happens, all you got to do is clear your browsers cache. This is when the famous question is asked “What’s a browsers cache?”.  Well your browsers cache, also called Temporary Internet Files for some browsers, is a folder where some items such as images, photos, or even entire websites are stored or cached. This is so visiting frequent websites takes less time and allows them to load much faster.
