So you now have your new website and you are making your first edits. You click the update button and check or preview your site to see the changes only to see no change. What gives!
There’s nothing more frustrating than making an update in your website’s content only to look and see your changes are nowhere to be found. Usually, this issue is caused by your web browser’s cache. So what is the cache? And how can you get rid of it so you can see your updates?
What is Cache?
The cache, or the storing of data, of your web browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) keeps versions of websites as you view them and shows them to you in the future instead of downloading the newest version. Your browser does this because using cache allows the page to load much faster since it’s already stored on your computer. Once you clear your cache, the browser will stop using the saved version of your site and go grab the newest version, including your updates.

Now that you know what your cache is, you probably want to know how to get rid of it so you can see your updates.
