Clearing your browsers cache

In order to speed up browsing, your web browser keeps copies of files that typically do not change. Images, style sheets and JavaScript are examples of file types that are usually cached. When you change something there is a chance that your browser will still use the copy it has cached. Clearing your browsers cache will force the browser to make another request to the web server to download its assets again.
