Why do you need to refresh your browser and clear your cache?

We get this question A LOT when developing websites for our clients. Especially when there are lots of revisions throughout the process. The reason you need to refresh your browser and/or clear your browser’s cache is because every time you visit a website, the content is being stored on your computer. If you’re not seeing changes that have been made to your site, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re viewing the older stored version of the site – not the site as it actually exists online. When in doubt, if you’re not seeing changes that have been made, the first troubleshoot you should try is to refresh your browser and clear your cache.
