Are you missing out? Browsers, e.g. Chrome, Edge and Firefox all 'cache' data on the sites that you visit, this enables them to load up the site pages faster when you visit those sites again. The downside of caching is that it means that you will not always see the latest page on a website, particularly when a site's images change. Sites like www.rossmartin.co.uk often display different headers to celebrate holidays and seasons, we change ours for fun: because we can!

If you cannot see our seasonal header you need to clear your browser's cache.

FAQ Do I clear all cookies?

Clearing the cache will not clear all the site cookies that are stored on your machine unless you have ticked the option to clear cookies too.

If you clear all site cookies then you have to re-enter passwords and login details for some sites.
