Refresh / Reload
Use the Refresh (Internet Explorer) or Reload (Netscape) button to update a web page. If a web page is taking longer usual to load, hit the Refresh / Reload button; this often helps the page to load faster. Have you ever called someone on the phone and found that you had a bad connection? Did you hang up, called the person again and realised you got a better connection? It's the same thing on the Internet.

Another good reason to update a web page is because what you may be seeing on your screen may actually be an outdated page. How? Your computer can store information from previous visits to a web page. This allows a web page to load faster the next time you visit since it's loading information from your computer's memory and not from the web site. If you are shopping at a website you visited in the past, you should hit the Refresh / Reload button to make certain you are viewing up-to-date prices.

Tip: If you click a link to a page and you got that pesky "Page Not Found" error, or the pages comes up blank, try hitting the Refresh / Reload button. Your browser may just find it on the second try.

The History stores the address of websites you visited from as far back as a few weeks. All you need to do is open up your history file and search through the list of sites to see if any names ring a bell.
