This is a very nice guide. I think that Razzi3l should include this in her tech support compendium.

He has a reserved spot at the top, he could always quote my post :P

I wanted to do this because in nearly every thread this happens:

Person1: Game can’t load!
Person2: Clear Cache
Person1: How I do that?

Yeah, this is going to help many people out over time. And you might want to include the Browser Flock, I have heard of it but never gave it a try!

Cool – we may end up linking to this fairly often. :) Nice job.

Though I don’t think you need to include Flock, Camino, Konqueror, etc. You’d end up in a Sisyphusian task trying to document all of them, and we don’t officially support them. The only one you’re missing that we officially support is IE6, but I can provide some pictures of that since it can be hard to find a copy of it (there are some standalone versions that work with varying degrees of success – I just have an installation of XP dedicated solely to having IE6).

Some IE6 pictures would be nice Phoenix, thank you :)

Phoenix was going to do it ;-;

Haha, well, if Ventero already has it that just saves me some time. :)

Textile unfortunately has a limit to how many characters can be in a post – it’s possible you jumped over that limit if it’s not responding any more. You may need to switch over to html, though it looks fine to me at the moment.

Since the screenshots were removed I thought of giving some help to Chrome Users.

Go to Setting—>Tools—>Clear Browsing Data


New Tab opens and then a dialog box pops up, in that check Clear Cache and in the time specify the time from which instance of which you want the cache to be cleared.
