You know, stuff like news, stocks, and weather-type sites. Have you ever noticed that sometimes you just can't get the page to refresh? Sure, you hit the refresh button but it's the same page (and you just know it's been updated). Explorer is stubbornly refusing to re-load the page properly. Is there any hope? Are you going to be stuck looking at outdated information forever? You'll be glad to learn there is a little trick you can use. Just put a question mark after the URL. Your browser, not being all that bright, will think it's a new page and re-load it for you. The question mark won't affect the page or the way it's displayed, so don't sweat that part. Anyhow, here's an example. Let's say you went to: www.yoururlhere.com To make the page completely re-load, type this instead: www.yoururlhere.com? Oh, if you need to keep re-loading, you can keep adding stuff after the question mark: www.yoururlhere.com?1kjsdk Cool huh? Why does this work? When your browser sees the question mark, it only loads the page in front of it. However, since the whole URL changes, you get a complete re-load of the page.
