How to clear cache in your browser

How to clear cache in your browser

Why is it necessary to clear cache?

For a web application such as FIVE CRM, there are always parts of it that are cached by browsers. Those parts are usually static files (such as image and javascript files) that don’t change, and if the browser keeps a local copy then it doesn’t have to keep downloading them thereby making the application quicker.
 
However, when there is a new release of the application those static files will need to be updated which then causes a problem because the browser thinks it doesn’t need to fetch them.
 
So how can we force the browser to fetch the new files? Basically we need to clear the cache memory so the browser has to fetch it all from scratch.
