Clearing Your Cache – Safari 5+ (MAC)

All browsers work hard to provide a fast page loading speed. They do this by loading files into the browser’s cache so they can be displayed quickly rather than having to pull every single file from a server. It means next time you visit that particular site the cached files will cut down the page load time.

Often when there are problems or changes are not being displayed you are asked to clear your cache. This is so that if a file has been changed, the cache will be updated with the new file.
