Empty Safaris Cache to Speed it Up
To load web pages faster, Safari saves their copies to cache – an area from where they can be easily loaded. However, cache files can take a lot of hard drive space and slow down your Safari, as the larger the cache, the more time is needed to check it. To see how much space is taken by cache files, go to Library, Caches, com.apple.Safari, Cache.db. The amount of the Cache.db file may range from megabytes to gigabytes, depending on the number of pages you visited.
Follow these steps to empty the cache:
1. In the Safari menu, click Empty Cache.
2. A confirmation alert will appear. Confirm it by clicking the Empty button.
3. Restart Safari and see the difference!
