I recently downloaded OnyX to help improve the performance of my Mac. I have gone to the 'Automation' tab and I checked off everything but the 'Web Browser Cache and History.' I was curious what the effects of checking that option would be. For instance, as of right now hyperlinks that I have visited in the past (in Firefox) are purple. Would clearing the browser cache and history get rid of ALL of the purple hyperlinks, as if I had never used Firefox before? I don't want that to happen so I just thought I'd ask before I tried it. Thanks.

Clearing the Web browser cache and history removes all the past sites you visited and the caching of web pages. You can do the same thing from within FF, Safari, Chrome, whichever browser you're currently using.
