Safari 5.1 (OS X Lion): Empty the cache
If the content on a webpage seems outdated, you may want to empty the cache to make Safari retrieve the latest version of the page. If you think a webpage is not opening properly, emptying the cache may help.
Empty the cache
- Open Safari if it is not already open.
- Choose Safari > Empty Cache, and then click Empty.
Reload the current page
While viewing a webpage using Safari, choose View > Reload Page, or click the Reload icon (curved arrow) in the Safari address field.
Reloading a page always shows you the latest version of the page, bypassing the cache.
