I've been caught out by this so often. I usually have a lot of pages open from a site with frequently-changing content. When I return to one I opened earlier, I watch the flea circus on the tab as the page reloads. If I then refresh the page (F5), I find that it had been updated some time ago.

 

How can I be sure that I see the latest version on returning to an open page?

 

I may have misunderstood what this Internet Options setting does, but this is what I mean:

Where are those settings in the Edge insider browser?

I can't find them, which is why I posted ;)

@HotCakeX 

 

They are not.  They are old settings for IE and can be found in the old control panel.

I knew they looked familiar, but not for Edge.

Chrome only refreshes tabs whenever you switch to them because it's discarded them in the background when the system has insufficient RAM or Chrome is using more RAM than it is supposed to.
The same should be true about this new chromium based Edge.

You mean you expect this to be how Edge Insider does it, or you think this is how the browser ought to behave? I want to be able to require the tab to be refreshed from the server when I return to it.

 

This is particularly important at so many sites that tell me irritatingly that the content I'm looking at was created n minutes ago.  How am I to know whether those minutes are counted from now or from some point hours ago when I last viewed the page? 

 

Where's @ericlaw when you need him?

Solution
I expect that behavior. Edge insider doesn't currently have a full documentation.
I think the reason why we don't see it in the new browsers is that most often we have something important in the tabs open and refreshing the page would disrupt that activity.

but that doesn't mean you can't do it via extensions.

Thanks. I suppose I've just got to get used to looking for third-party add-ons to do stuff that I expect the browser to be able to do unaided. It's a new world for me.

That's right unfortunately, sometimes companies remove useful features and services and don't care if people rely on them..
