Hi, my browsers caches a lot and I am not sure how to make it stop.  I went to my tools and deleted the web history, etc. But still it will not update my css file.  After a while, my css just does not show the changes until much later.  Does anyone know what to do when this happens?

Which browser are you using?

Have you tried adding "sample.com\?"

I do some FLASH coding and find that I need to exit Firefox entirely and restart it to get it to reload a SWF file.  Could be the same with CSS.

With IE, I can usually get it to reload by doing a shift-refresh from the View menu.

When you restart Firefox does it see the new CSS file?  If not, it may be your ISP is caching it.  I've seen that happen, too.

If you are simply trying to see the new page, then hold down the "Shift" key and click the "Reload" icon in firefox or other Mozilla-based browsers. Use Ctrl-Refresh in IE, or use Ctrl-F5 any browser.
