Users need websites to load quickly, at a blink of an eye. Browsers play their part in speeding up the page loading process by caching files and content when you first visit a website and then serving from cache on subsequent visits.
However, there may be times when browsers continue to serve cache even if the actual page/content has been changed. As a result, you may encounter certain errors or continue to see older content. In such cases, clearing the cache and cookies of a browser can help.
This document discusses the steps required to clear the cache and cookies on different browsers.
