How to Clear Your Cache on Any Browser?

How to

The cache of your browser saves copies of webpages, photos, videos, and other stuff that you’ve visited with it. This reduces the amount of webpage requests your browser makes. If you visit a site that is already in your cache, your browser will load it from your hard drive right away.

You should clean cache on a regular basis to free up space on your hard disk, as well as when websites cease working properly, such as when utilizing an older site design.
