12.1. How to Clear a Browser's Cache


In an effort to make your internet browsing experience faster, your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc) will create a local cache on your computer of web pages that you frequent.


Although an increased browsing speed sounds ideal, it can take up valuable storage space on your computer and pose a major threat to your privacy.  The cache stores all sorts of pictures, videos, audio clips, and cookies from websites that you have visited.


For instructions on clearing the cache for your preferred browser, please follow the steps outlined in the following WikiHow article: WikiHow: Clear Your Browser's Cache
