Clearing your browser's cache - Safari

Web browsers are designed to download web pages and store them locally on your computer's hard drive in an area called the 'cache'. This is normally used when re-visiting a web page so that the information on it loads more quickly than the first time you visited.

Information stored in the cache can include; images, sounds, web pages and even cookies. Once the cache has filled up, your computer's performance can slow down, so it's advisable that you regularly clear the cache for the best performance.
