In chrome and firefox you can also click on the little padlock in the address bar. There should be a big button that says clear cookies.

Have you got the new version of Egde based on Chromium? Go to Settings > Privacy/Security and then Clear Data (or similar, not in front if a Windows PC) but you may also be able to do it by clicking in the HTTPS shield/certificate to the left of the URL and delete site settings.
