Clear the Cache on an Internet Browser

Each internet browser features a cache or history of visited sites. This feature allows frequently visited pages to load more quickly since repetitive information is stored. However, the cache can become full. Clearing the cache empties the stored information and allows web pages to load new or different items. Users can clear the cache on any internet browser anytime they encounter issues on the internet.
