If I want to truely reload everything (because I'm a site developer), I can do this with shift-reload. Note: the revalidate Cache-Control directive is not the issue here, other sites that don't use this show the same behavior Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Reload is not the same and should not be. Loading it again = load from the cache if the document freshness permits it reload = asks the server if the cache document is still the same shift+reload= throw away the cache and load the document again from the server This is by design
