“Have you cleared your browser’s cache recently?” this might sound like a modern version of “have you tried turning your computer off and on again” but this is no voodoo, clearing your browser cache and cookies on a regular basis can help keep JobAdder running in tip top condition.
What is this browser ‘cache’ you speak of?
The browser cache exists because browser designers believe your computer will be able to display elements of a website faster than your internet connection can redownload them each time you visit. For example, if an image is present on multiple pages of a website, the browser will download a copy onto your computer so it can be accessed much faster next time, this is the cache.
Why do my browser’s cache and cookies have to be emptied on a regular basis?
As you go about your day, your cache with gradually build up cruft from partially downloaded web pages or strange formatting. Eventually, you’ll notice that your browser, and therefore JobAdder, is running slower than it once was. Clearing your browser cache will give you an instant speed boost. Think of it as a spring clean for your hard working laptop or desktop.
