Clear Cache?


Well-Known Member
I am cleaning out some old hoarded computer maintenance paper notes. I've come across a January 2011 Mactalk article by Chris Breen that suggest various tips to 'speed up your mac'. Since my computer is beginning to getting long in the tooth (mid 2015 model MBP bought in 2017) I'm looking at tip #5 involving 'Restart your browser and clear its cache'. Then old instructions given in the article no longer apply to my version of OSX [10.15.7] ( Safari menu - Empty cache) so I am wondering it this is still a thing and should I do it? Having visited several websites for a quick look on the topic, I am left wondering.

It’s not really a thing anymore, though various utilities programs still claim to do it.
