How to clear cache in different browsers

Your Internet browser’s cache stores certain information (snapshots) of webpages you visit on your computer or mobile device so that they’ll load more quickly upon future visits and while navigating through websites that use the same images on multiple pages. However, occasionally your browser’s cache can prevent you from seeing updated content, or cause functional problems when stored content conflicts with live one. You can fix many browser problems simply by clearing your cache. This tutorial will show you how to clear the cache for all major browsers.
