How to I clear my browser's cache and cookies? And why should I?


Clearing cache and cookies insures that you see the most recent version of your website.

Modern web browsers often download web pages and store them on your computer in your cache or cookies. When you visit a web page again, the browser speeds up loading time by displaying the downloaded version from your computer, instead of downloading the entire page from the web again . This is great for speed and data, but sometimes, you'll see an old version of a website. Clearing your cache and cookies will prevent this.
