Timmy, or someone else with computer knowledge, I have noticed that when I access IOMfAtS on my Chrome browser, I have a fast connection, but the site updates do not always show up in a timely manner.  When I use Edge, the updates show up instantly.  Firefox lags Edge, but not nearly as much as Chrome.

Example: A few minutes ago, I accessed this stie on Chrome.  Clicking on the Forum, it showed that Geron Kees had commented on some items in Literary Merit.  But when I accessed the threads, the updates did not show up.  I enabled Edge, and the updates showed up and I read them.  Switching back to Chrome, they were still not there.

I'm on a desktop computer most of the time, with a 400 megabyte per second Internet connection.  I have the latest versions of Chrome 10.0 and Edge.  On my phones I use the Chrome which came with them.

Anyone, any theories?

Bisexual_guy: I haven't noticed any difference in performance between browsers and/or OS. I guess some browsers might access cached pages first so that might explain not getting the latest changes to this web site. I think in most browsers doing a CTRL/F5 will force the browser to fetch the page from the internet rather than the local cache.

It is likely to depend om the local cache settings of individual browsers and that they are likely to have different defaults.

Our server also has a server-side cacheing scheme, but that should have a global effect. All busuy servers have server-side cache to enable them to serve pages better. After all, a forum and a regular web site is not an instant messagung service, so normal circunstabnces mean this should never matter
