Clearing the cache is very in Safari. All it takes is a few simple steps.
1. First, with Safari active, click “Safari” in the toolbar on the top part of your screen.
2. Next, in the menu that appears, select “Empty Cache.”
3. A dialogue box will appear asking you if you are sure you want to empty the cache. Click the “Empty” button.
And that’s it. It’s that simple.
The Safari browser saves a cache of the websites you view so that those sites will load faster the next time you visit those sites. But sometimes, the cache gets too big and that could cause the browser to slow down.
Note that this procedure does not erase your browsing history, delete saved usernames and passwords, or clear your browser’s cookies.
