Empty cache

When someone visits a web page, a copy of that page is stored in the cache. It contains images and other files that the browser can retrieve when you revisit that page. This makes web pages load faster.

This can cause problems when Watermelon performs an update. The cache causes the old data to be loaded. If you clear the browser's cache, the latest versions of web pages and programs will be loaded into the browser.
