Chapter in this post:
The cache memory in the Safari browser under macOS is used to speed up processes, to save scripts and files and to store other data temporarily. For example, images or other special elements are stored in the cache so that they do not have to be downloaded again when the relevant website is called up again. Although the memory is referred to as "temporary", it usually persists even after you exit Safari and even the system. This can lead to display errors, a cluttered hard drive and thus to a slow Mac. Here I will show you how you can clear the Safari cache under macOS.
In the following I will show you the individual steps that you have to take if you want to delete the Safari cache on the Apple Mac under macOS. For the sake of clarity, I have shown the individual steps after the list with corresponding screenshots:
Delete junk data from Mac hard drive: CleanMyMac 3 in the test
In the menu of Safari There is not only the above way to get rid of data from visited websites, but below Course -> Delete history… also the ability to remove the list of websites visited, their icons and so on. The cache appears to be left untouched. This is not very obvious, but you can find a hint in the Safari Help. If you click on the circled question mark in the "Delete history" window, the help window opens - with the note, among other things, that the list of loaded objects will be deleted, but not the objects and files themselves. If not are downloaded files in the download folder, then the cache is meant;)
