If you are facing some issues with chrome, like formating issues or loading issues then clearing your cache is a good place to start. This trick works 90% of the time and can save you from a lot of headaches.

What are cache and cookies?

When you open a website on your computer, it will sometimes save certain information on your browser.  The cookie saves a user's information that identifies your machine like your login details or personal information etc. The cache saves information like images, videos, and other parts of the page which helps the browser to load the page quickly.

When you clear the cache and cookies data all of the saved information gets deleted. It means that all your login details will be gone and you need to re-enter your passwords, and the load time of some websites will increase because your browser needs all the data from the server.
