Information

Cache is RAM (Random Access Memory) that is set aside as a specialized buffer storage that is continually updated; used to optimize data transfers between system elements with different characteristics. It is perfectly safe to delete your cache, and very beneficial when you do in ways more than one. You may find problems with Pony Vs. Pony after game updates that are often fixed by deleting your cache, so it is advisable to do so after every release.

Below shows very simple instructions on how to empty your cache for various browsers.


Note-Also one Minor problem is when you clear your cache. If you have a time restriction on your computer on the day you clear your cache the restriction will not go off but should be back the next day
