“I don’t see any of the website changes that we discussed.” I probably hear this saying at least a couple of time during a website design project.
The problem with seeing the most recent updates to a website is your internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and many more) use caching.
Internet browsers use caching to store HTML web pages by storing a copy of visited pages and then using that copy to render when you re-visit that page. So instead of seeing the most recent version of a website, your browser pull up the stored version. If the date on the page is the same date as the previously stored copy, then the computer uses the one on your hard drive rather than re-downloading it from the internet.
The website version on your hard drive is an older version and will not have the most recent changes.

Here are the steps to seeing the most recent version of a website.
