Browsers store some data from the websites you visit to speed up loading the website next time in its cache. Clearing cache help to fix specific problems such as formatting issues and loading older versions of a website.

As cache piles up and size increases, it can degrade your browsing experience. The cache can also grow really big and take a lot of memory space on your computer.

Normally we clear the browsing data and it clears the cache for all the websites. In some scenarios, we may need to clear cache for a specific website. In this tutorial, we learn how to clear cache for a specific website in Google Chrome.
