how to easily clean your browser cache

There are many types of Internet browsers, such as Chrome™, Internet Explorer®, Firefox®, Opera®, Safari® and Dolphin Browser®, and many different platforms, like Windows®, Mac OS® X, iOS, and Android™. All these browsers have one thing in common - they store cache. This means certain information on visited web pages, like HTML pages, images, etc., are saved on computers or mobile devices. There are pros and cons about this. The browser can load cached pages faster, but cache consumes space on hard drives and old data in cache could cause lags.

That is why browsers allow users to manually clean their cache, which you should do every two weeks or so. Every browser offers this feature. Find out how to easily clean your cache with keyboard shortcuts for a few of the most popular Internet browsers below.
