Why should you clear cache?

Browsers try to do their part to speed up the loading process. The first time you visit a site, the browser will save pieces of the site, because the browser can display the files stored in its cache much faster than it can pull fresh files from a server. The next time you visit that site, the cached files will help cut down the page load time.

If we change a file that your browser has cached, it’s going to keep serving the old, cached version of the file and you won’t see our most recent changes. This is when, you may encounter browser errors like run time error, buttons missing on the page, etc.

Clearing the Cache and Cookies in a browser helps fix these issues.
