Blog Prob: Refreshing Browser's Cache

A lot of bloggers and their readers are facing the problem that the blogs they open show the old posts and do not show the updates made recently. This is due to the browser cache not refreshing itself. The problem usually goes away by itself in a day or too, but is highly recurrent. And dial-up users are affected more than broadband users. The solution to this, however, is very simple. You have to refresh the browser's cache.
To do so open the blog/website which is showing you the outdated content. Press and hold [Ctrl] on your keyboard, then Press [F5] or click on the Refresh button. This will refresh the cache of that particular page and show you the updated content.

did you listen about index.dat files which save some information about your web navigation and don't is deleted when you clear cache? well is right that it occur just in iexplorer, but still curious, not?

@ Admiyn

No, clearing your cache does not delete or erase the data in index.dat file. The fact that clearing your Internet Temporary Files and History doesn't erase the URLs stored in index.dat has raised some personal security concerns among the users and it is seen as an invasion of privacy by many. For more info on the matter, see this link:

an even more effective solution is to subscribe to the rss file (the whole point about blogs) which continuously updates you and gives you direct links to the new entries without having to worry about cache problems.
plus you have all your blogs available from one point.
