Hello I feel my bookair are more slow than usual, especially surf in internet, I use Safari, Chrome and Firefox.

How can optimize the OS?
How can I delete all the cache, temporary files,... from the internet browsers?
Has the system some utility to measure the speed and now if is normal or slower?
