When you visit a website for the first time, your browser has a conversation with the remote server that hosts the site. Your browser sends a request, and the server sends back one of the website's assets. This can take some time depending on the amount of information in the webpage. To speed up subsequent visits to the website a lot of the information is stored in the browser cache on your computer's hard drive. Retrieving information from your hard drive is much quicker than across the internet from the webpage each time. Depending on the website's settings the cache can be stored for just a few days or sometimes longer.
When updating a website, if the information (for example a logo) is in the cache then your computer will not show the new one until the cache is refreshed. So you may need to refresh manually rather than wait for the current cache to expire.
So when we update Databridge you may need to refresh the browser cache depending on what we have updated.
Refreshing the Cache
