What is a browser cache and how to clear it?

Your browser’s cache refers to temporary files that are stored on your computer, including pictures, Flash files, sound effects, and other elements from all the web pages you have ever accessed. The next time you go to these websites they are not loaded from scratch, but rather from the cache, which speeds up loading time.

!Attention! Do not forget to reload the page with the game after clearing the cache
