How & Why to Clear Your Web Browser Cache

When you visit a page your web browser stores parts of the pages like images and styles sheets in it's "cache". This gives you a faster browsing experience on the web because your browser does not have to download every element of every page every time you visit a page. It already has a copy of many elements from the last time you visited the page or website.

But the web pages change. A lot.And sometimes your browser remembers too much. If we've made changes to your website, sometimes your browser thinks it already has the latest content and does not know that it's changed. Clearing your cache forces your browser to reload all the content from your website and prevents pages looking strange after we've made changes.
