How to clear the cache in the browser

When using browsers, the data of the web pages you visit is cached (if caching is enabled on the site). These data are stored in a special folder on the drive of your PC. And when you go to the site for the second time, the browser checks the content of the site, and gives out the changed information, and takes all the other cache from the folder. This is necessary and useful to reduce the load on the site server (since the browser does not make a request to the server each time you open the site, but simply uses the stored cache data), and of course, for a better loading of the site. But it happens that cached files take up a lot of memory, or because of the cache the contents of the site are not displayed correctly (as the content is pulled from the cache). In this case, you need to clear the cache.

(Samsung j530 phone interface is taken as an example).
 
Depending on the browser, the removal will be almost the same as for a PC. We will consider for clarity for the frequently used browser Google Chrome.

on iOS

2. And go to ‘Clear site history and data’.
 
3.Last step, click on ‘Clear. history and data ’.
 
After clearing the cache, you can see that sites load longer than usual. This is because the browser again needs to cache static content. A return visit to this site, taking into account the cache, will already be significantly accelerated. If the sites load stably slowly, most likely a problem with the hosting. Is it time to change the hosting?
