How to clear browser cookies and cache

When working with Typepad or other online applications, you may find it helpful to clear your browser's cookies and cache if you encounter any problems.

Clearing the browser cache is helpful to see recent updates to your blog. Browsers will have a cached version of your blog which is displayed to speed up the load time of pages you frequently visit.
