How to Clear History, Cookies and Cache on the Safari Web Browser for the IPhone

Safari is the default Internet Browser on the iPhone. Since it is a full browser, sometimes the most visited websites will act sluggish. Normally, the first suggestion a person receives it to clear the cache and cookies on the browser. In addition to clearing the cache and the cookie files, a person may need to clear the history information. The history file stores a link to all the previously visited websites using the Safari browser. Clearing this information is fairly easy and quick on the iPhone.
