I use both Firefox and IE, but usually Firefox. Back in the day (a LONG time ago), we were always told to do shift+refresh to ensure that you get a new page. I've always stuck with that since using Firefox as my main browser for years. I had always been curious about how good that was at clearing everything out and I found out today that it was not so good. I was just instructed on how to change the favicon for our websites. Now that we have done that, we notice that the cache had to be explicitly cleared by going to history and deleting all the history which includes the cache.
My question is...
Is there a shortcut method for clearing the cache, and will it work for both Firefox and IE?
