How To Clear Your Browser History and Cache

 Why you should clear your Cache?

A website is composed of thousands of files stored on a webserver. When you access webpages like Edison, many of these files are stored on your computer in a cache allowing for easier access the next time you visit. Websites like Edison are constantly being updated. As a result, the files stored on your computer slowly become outdated. By clearing this cache, your computer will download the latest files the next time you visit Edison.

Clearing cache will frequently resolve any error messages or slowness you are encountering while using Edison.
