Clear Your Cache

Ok, so you need to reload that website. Properly. In case you didn’t know, your browser saves a lot of information so that a web page can load quicker next time. Very helpful. Until it starts saving information that needs to be updated. Then how do you clear its memory? The ‘memory’ is called a cache and what you need to do is clear your cache. Each browser handles it differently, so here’s a quick reference on how to do it for Chrome, Safari, Firefox and internet explorer.

CHROME (Desktop)
Go to the Chrome (More, for Windows OS) dropdown at the top bar and click Clear Browsing Data. Ensure Cached images and files is ticked and click Clear Data.

Note: Chrome is a cheeky little blighter that will continue to keep information even after the cache has been cleared. The best way to insure this doesn’t happen, or to reload the page for sure, is to open an Incognito tab. Click the three vertical dots at the top right and select New Incognito Tab.

CHROME (Mobile)
Go to the three horizontal dots at the bottom and click History. Click Clear Data and ensure that Cached Images and Files has been ticked before tapping the red button.

SAFARI (Desktop)
Go to the Safari dropdown at the top bar and click Preferences. Select advanced. Select Develop. Click Empty Cache.

SAFARI (Mobile iOS)
Go to your settings app. Go to Safari. Clear history and website data.

Firefox (Desktop)
Go to the History dropdown at the top bar and click Clear Recent History. Click Clear Now (ensuring Cache has been ticked).

Firefox (Mobile)
Go to the Menu at the top right and tap settings. Go to privacy and settings. Select Clear Private Data.

Microsoft Internet Explorer (Desktop)
Firstly, please choose another browser. No-one should be using Internet Explorer. Like ever. But to clear the cache, click on the gear, top right. Click ‘safety’, delete browsing history.
