SummaryHow do I clear my browser's cache and cookies?
This article will guide you on how to optimize your Google Chrome browser performance.  Cache and cookies are small text files that websites put on a computer to store information about the user and their preferences.

Over time, these temporary information can pile up on your computer's storage.  Most browsers have a limit on how much information can be stored but it is still best to occasionally clear it to fix issues and speed up the browser's performance.  Some websites may not load correctly or loads partially or not respond at all due to caching issues.
