A browser cache (also called "temporary internet files") is a special folder that stores web page elements that a browser thinks it will need again. It could be banners, buttons, icons, advertisement image files, photographs, script files, or even HTML pages. If you access the same page again, your computer does not need to download these elements again, thus speeding up your browsing experience.

Sometimes it becomes necessary to clear your browser's cache to force a webpage to display new elements that have appeared since your last visit to the page.

To clear your browser's cache, follow the instructions below.

  1. From the Safari menu, select Preferences.
