    Does 'Back' reload the page? (IE7)

    As the title suggests, I would like to know if pressing the "Back" button reloads the page or does it activate it from the history or cookies or whatever. Sorry for the slang terms, but I am not a guru when it comes to IE fundamentals.
    The reason why I ask is that my internet contract is based on using bytes. I would like to limit the amount of bytes I use while browsing, so is it more cost effective to use "Back" that to click on a link to take me back to the previous page(s).

    TX

    The back button should only read what is in your internet temp files. Thus saving you from downloading it again, unless the PAGE is set to do a update by the webmaster.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    You should also check your Internet settings to see when data is refreshed to save downloading data unnecessarily. With automatic, you will of course be likely to miss Loungers updated user-pics etc. until you clear your cache.

    Tx...I will look into this setting.
    I may delay the setting for a while to find out if Hans will go for a user pic <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    <hr>The reason why I ask is that my internet contract is based on using bytes. I would like to limit the amount of bytes I use while browsing, so is it more cost effective to use "Back" that to click on a link to take me back to the previous page(s).<hr>

    With the quote in mind, here is another question.
    I would like to prevent flash inserts in the web pages to play, and prevent video clips from playing. How can I do this but retain gif animations and retain pictures? Talking about pics, is there a way of stating what size pics can load and let others above a certain size display as frames with the red X.

    I may sound like a Scrooge right now, but quite the opposite. All my gift buying is making my megs' feel a little squeezed <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
