How do I delete cache?

What is cache? 

Cache is a storage space where frequently used data are stored temporary to provide a faster access. On your computer this means the temporarily internet files. 


Why do I have to empty my cache once in a while?

Sometimes it occurs you're still using an older version of a page on a website, while the page has been modified. Refreshing the page won't work. The browser gets the page from the cache on the pc and shows the old version. By deleting all cache files on your computer, the website will load the final version of the server so you get to see the latest information on your computer.
