Chapter 8. Browsing the Internet Wirelessly > Clearing the Browser Cache

Clearing the Browser Cache

Caching is something that happens automatically to make browsing the web faster for you. As mentioned in a previous section of this chapter, web pages and pictures are stored locally on your handheld so if you request them again they do not have to be retrieved from the Internet each time. Obviously, all these things take up storage space on your handheld.

If you use the browser a lot, you should periodically clear the browser cache so that your handheld does not run out of storage space. The browser cache is cleared when your device is reset, but hopefully this doesn't happen often. Instead, you should use the menu items in the General Properties option group. You can open this group by clicking the Options menu item then selecting the General Properties and clicking the trackwheel again.
