   - Firstly you need some browser. We recommend you downloading and installing Mozilla Firefox: https://​www.mozilla.org/​en-US/​firefox/​new.

For this we recommend you Empty cache button with which you can simply by one click delete cache data: https://​addons.mozilla.org/​en-US/​firefox/​addon/​empty-cache-button.   - Firstly you need some browser.
