To speed things up and conserve communications bandwidth, browsers (e.g. Chrome, Firefox) attempt to keep local copies of pages, images, and other content you’ve visited, so that it does not need to be downloaded again later. Occasionally this caching scheme goes awry (e.g. the browser insists on showing out-of-date content) making it necessary to bypass the cache and force your browser to re-download a web page’s complete, up-to-date content.
