Clearing Your Browser's Cache

How do I clear my web browser's cache?

Each time you access a file through your web browser, the browser caches it (stores it). In this way, the files (including any images on the page) do not have to be retrieved anew from the remote web site each time you click the Back or Forward buttons. You should clear the cache if you expect to see changes on a website.
