Proxy

If you have already read the page on "Temporary Internet Files" you will see that sometimes you load pages from your hard drive and not from the internet. Unfortunately it gets worse, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) also uses a cache, and this is called a Proxy Cache, or Proxy Server.

When you visit a site, your ISP will save it to their hard drive, so the next time you ask for that page (If there are no changes) it loads from their hard drive. Cheat Cheat Cheat !

This is very bad, because your ISP may not load the new page for sometime, however you can usually force an update, and get a fresh copy of the page, just use Control (Ctrl) F5 to refresh the page.

If you empty your Temporary Internet Files, your ISP may still be loading the old stuff from their hard drive.
