Why does older webpage version keep popping up?

Does anyone have an explanation as to why sometimes certain pages of a website I’m constructing would display an older version which I had already deleted from the server and replaced with a newer version? Usually when this happens, it would only revert to the newer version after refreshing a few times. I need some suggestions and answers please!!

Hi there,

This is due to the browser - it is called caching. The browser stores a local copy of webpages on your computer to speed up the loading of pages as it is quicker to load a webpage from your own computer than downloading it from the internet every time. Most browsers will refresh the page without using their cache if you use the shortcut CTRL+R or CTRL+F5

Thanks for the reply. That clarifies things.
