YOUR BROWSER CACHE and Opus 2
Overview of Browser Cache
Each time you access a file through your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome), the browser caches or ‘stores’ it so it doesn't have to keep retrieving the same files or images from the remote web site each time you click Back or Forward. As a practice, periodically clearing the cache allows your browser to function more efficiently.
Clearing your Browser Cache and Cookies
Many elements that you see after initially logging in to Opus 2 are stored within your browser cache and cookies. When Opus 2 issues an update, patch, or other change to your server, you may be advised to clear your cache and/or cookies. This forces Opus 2 to freshly download all materials, and allows you to fully engage with any new features or settings.
