Always on the client, sometimes on the server if caching is installed for the application.  Caching can be a little bit complicated.  While you can request that a page not be cached, you can't un-cache it from the browser.  You have to wait until the copy in the browser cache expires before a new copy is loaded.  The browser user can request a new copy of the a page by pressing Ctl-F5 (Windows) but that won't necessarily reload fresh copies of images and scripts.
