Running Windows 7
 
I have a web page that displays my latest change, only if I open the web page in Internet Explorer browser. If I open that same web page using Google Chrome, the latest change is not showing. All previous information on the web page is showing in both browsers.
It's just the change I just added is not showing in Chrome.
 
The page when opened in IE...  http://www.powers31.info/2011_KLR650.htm
 
The same page opened in Chrome...  http://www.powers31.info/2011_KLR650.htm
 
NOTE: I opened the page, and copied the address and pasted it here. The addresses look identical.
 
Why won't Chrome display my latest addition, when IE does display it.
BTW: The change is at the very end of the page, labeled.. "AirBox Modification"

The first thing that popped into my mind is to ask if you have cleared the Chrome cache before attempting to view the page.

 

My next thought is to ask if there is a known time lapse before Chrome will eventually display the changes.

 

Last thought...this topic should probably be best served in the Web Site Development forum.

Hello

I also think that this is happening due to the cache problem.

I have also faced similar kind of situations several times. But when I checked the URL in incognito window then all the changes were visible.

So I cleared cache of the chrome browser and open the URL again and this time it was updated.

You should also try this one and if the problem still occurs then you should contact experts.

Thanks guys ! I cleared my browsing history. (Is that what you meant by clearing the cache?)

My change is showing now.

BTW: Can you explain just why this was happening?  Why does having browsing history cause this?

Clearing cache does not equal clearing history, but it might have cleared both if you were at that screen.

 

When you visit a website, your browser caches it so that it doesn't have to reach out to the server again to present the same data. Your browser will typically hold onto the page for a certain amount of time before reaching back out to save bandwidth, processing, and time. There are many mechanisms for controlling this "timeout" before it decides to reach out to the network, but we won't get into that here.

 

Clearing the cache basically just forces the browser to clear any local temp files for the page and reach out to the network for the content again. You can effectively do this with Ctrl+F5 in Chrome and Firefox.
