Empty Safari’s Cache
Do you get frustrated as your internet browser takes longer and longer to load sites? After a few weeks of heavy use, do you sit tapping your fingers while websites load line by line…
All internet browsers hold information on sites visited. Temporary files are stored by the browser in order to load the site quicker should there be a slow connection speed. These files are commonly known as the cache and your computer will have a certain amount of memory set aside for them.
This is the way to clear the browser cache on the majority of Mac machines:
- Open the internet browser. On a Mac, this is likely to be Safari.
- You now have several choices. You can either clear the history alone (this is the list of websites you have previously visited), clear the cache on its own, or clear both and reset Safari.
- If you wish to clear the history alone, navigate to the word History in the banner at the top of the page.
- If you wish to clear the cache alone, then click on the bold word Safari in the banner at the top of the screen.
- If you wish to reset Safari completely, then, again in the Safari menu.
Using any of these techniques will make a difference in the speed of your browser. Clearing the cache regularly will keep your browser working at optimum speeds Anyone with mechanical appliance, from cars to boilers, will know performing regular maintenance keeps the system running smoothly.
