How do I empty the Cache?

In order to speed up web browsing, SHOE stores it's pages locally on your PC in cache. When you visit the same page again, your browser speeds up display time by loading the page locally from cache instead of downloading everything again. So Internet cache (also known as Temporary Internet files) stores the content of all web pages that you have visited (including pictures, animation, movies, other downloads, etc) during a session.

While it speeds up your surfing, it may happen, that a page still displays old infos or photos, although you have since uploaded new data. When this happens, you just need to clear your cache.
