Also, we wanted to share with you ways to clear your “cache” on your computer which will also not only provide maximum search capabilities on www.thespamart.com, but will improve your browsing speed overall on other sites as well.
Definition of Browser Cache
A cache is a temporary location on your computer that your web browser stores some files when you visit a web page.
The Low Down on Cache
Your browser’s cache, pronounced like cash, is a collection of web pages, including the text, images, and most other files contained on them, that is stored on your hard drive or your mobile phone—so pretty much your life history!
Having a local copy of a web page makes for very quick loading on your next visit because your computer or device doesn’t have to download from the internet all of that same information again; however, it may mean you are missing out on some things. And none of us want to be the last to the party!
Clear you Cache and The Rest Will Follow
Clearing the cache on your computer and your browser is forced to retrieve the newest copy available from the website, something that should happen automatically but sometimes does not. And if you see errors like 404 errors or 502 errors (among others), your cache may be corrupted and none of us have time for that
Want more room for your music, spreadsheets, and other files? Take control of your disk space by clearing your cache. More memory!
This is especially useful on your mobile devices since they have less storage than your desktop or laptop.
Clearing your Cache is Easy!
Shout out to our friends at freelanceprogrammer.com and lifewire.com for these tips!
In the majority of web browsers, you can clear the cache from the Privacy or History area in the Settings or Options menu, depending on the browser, of course. Ctrl+Shift+Del is the magic!
While that hotkey combo works in most non-mobile browsers, the exact steps involved in clearing your browser’s cache depend entirely on what web browser you’re using.
Here are some specific browser instructions that may be helpful:
Chrome: Clear Browsing Data
In Google Chrome, clearing the cache is done via the Clear browsing data area in Settings. From there, check Cached images and files (as well as anything else you want to remove) and then tap or click the CLEAR BROWSING DATA button.
Assuming you’re using a keyboard, the quickest way to Clear browsing data is via the Ctrl+Shift+Del keyboard shortcut.
Without a keyboard, tap or click the Menu button (the icon with three stacked dots) followed by More tools and finally Clear browsing data….
See How to Clear the Cache in Chrome [support.google.com] for more details.
Tip: Choose the beginning of time from the Clear the following items from option at the top of the Clear browsing data window to make sure you get everything.
In Chrome’s mobile browser, go to Settings and then Privacy. From there, choose Clear Browsing Data. In this menu, check Cached Images and Files and press the Clear Browsing Data button once, and then again when asked.
Internet Explorer: Delete Browsing History
In Microsoft Internet Explorer, the browser that comes pre-installed on most Windows computers, clearing the cache is done from the Delete Browsing History area.
From here, check Temporary Internet files and website files and then click or tap Delete.
Like with other popular browsers, the fastest way to the Delete Browsing History settings is via the Ctrl+Shift+Del keyboard shortcut.
Another option is via the Tools button (the gear icon), followed by Safety and then Delete browsing history….
See How to Clear the Cache in Internet Explorer for a full set of instructions.
Tip: Internet Explorer often refers to the cache as temporary internet files but they’re one in the same.
Firefox: Clear All History
In Mozilla’s Firefox browser, you clear the cache from the Clear All History area in the browser’s Options. Once there, check Cache and then tap or click Clear Now.
The Ctrl+Shift+Del keyboard shortcut is probably the fastest way to open this tool. It’s also available from Firefox’s Menu button (the three-lined “hamburger” button) via Options, then Privacy, and finally the clear your recent history link.
See How to Clear the Cache in Firefox for a complete tutorial.
Tip: Don’t forget to choose Everything from the Time range to clear set of options, assuming that’s the time frame you want to clear the cache over.
Safari: Empty Caches
In Apple’s Safari browser, clearing the cache is done via the Develop menu. Just tap or click Develop and then Empty Caches.
With a keyboard, clearing the cache in Safari is super easy with the Option-Command-E shortcut.
See How to Clear the Cache in Safari [help.apple.com] if you need more help.
Tip: If you don’t see Develop on your Safari menu bar, enable it via Preferences, then Advanced, followed by selecting the Show Develop menu in menu bar option.
Windows users can delete all of Safari’s stored data through the menu button and then Preferences… > Privacy > Remove All Website Data….
