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:
Chrome only refreshes tabs whenever you switch to them because it's discarded them ...
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?
