Most browsers have a way to clear the cache when you close the browser, or at least an easy one-click clearing method. Either way, it's a good idea to flush it occasionally.

I really don't know why browsers cache so much nowadays. Back in the 56k era, it made sense to help limit bandwidth by not downloading static content, but with today's proliferation of broadband, it hardly seems necessary.

Most of today's sites use static layout but have dynamic content populated from database queries and such. However, my site is almost all static and changed client-side, which is probably why it is more important to flush the cache.
