I hate having to refresh my browser or clear my cache every single time I make a change to my webpage. Is there a way to prevent any cache at all from being loaded? I basically use Firefox and IE, btw.

I don't know about IE, but you could change the cache size for Firefox to 0 which would have the effect of eliminating the cache.

I recall at one point that you could check a box requesting the browser to always get the new page from the internet rather than from cache, but that was a few years ago and I don't remember if that was IE or FF. The current FF doesn't have that option.

You can change this setting in IE also.

Click Start, Control Panel, Internet Properties
from the General tab, under the heading 'Browsing history', click 'Settings'
for 'Check for newer versions of stored pages:' select the radio button for 'Every time I visit the webpage'
Click OK, OK.
