Clearing your Cache

A browser cache takes elements from the websites you visit and saves them in a database, resulting in faster page load times and a more robust user experience the next time you go to a website you’ve been to before. The cache remembers parts of pages, like images, to help them open faster during your next visit.

The See Tickets Design team often tells users of the sites we build to clear their cache so they see the most recent code updates we’ve added. Here is a straightforward approach to clearing your cache on the 4 major browsers: Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.
