Clearing your Browser’s “Cache”
Normally, to see the changes on your page, you click the Refresh button on the browser toolbar or press the F5 key on your keyboard. In many cases, this simply reloads the page without clearing the browser’s cache. Here are some techniques to wipe clean the browser’s cache so you will see the changes when your page reloads.
Microsoft Internet Explorer
- Hold down SHIFT and click on the REFRESH button in the toolbar under the menu.
- For Serious Clearing: If you are having problems clearing out the cache, then force it by choosing from the menu TOOLS > INTERNET OPTIONS > TEMPORARY FILES. Click on Delete Temporary Files. You can choose the checkbox to delete all Internet files, but you might not want to as that will also clear all your passwords and cookies, but if you are having trouble viewing the changes on your page, go all the way.
- Hold down CTRL+SHIFT+R.
- If you are using Chris Pederick’s Web Developer Extension, click Miscellaneous and then Clear Cache.
- For Serious Clearing: From the browser menu, Tools > Options > Privacy > Cache and select Clear.
- From the menu, click Edit > Preferences > Advanced. Choose “Cache” and click both “Clear Memory Cache” and “Clear Disk Cache”.
Mozilla 1.x and up
- From the browser menu, Edit > Preferences > Advanced and click “Cache” and “Clear Cache”.
- From the browser menu, Edit > File > Preferences > History and Cache and click “Cache”.
- From the browser menu, Safari > Reset Safari and click Reset to confirm OR Safari > Empty Cache.
- Each browser may have a way of stopping or minimizing the caching of web pages. Using this technique will definitely slow down your web page viewing, and it isn’t a perfect solution because some caching may still occur, but it does help. Check your Internet browser’s help files for the specifics on how to turn off the cache feature.
