    ExpressBrowserRefresh?

    I've been experimenting with Express Browser. There's a refresh button (shaped like a curved arrow). However, when I press it, it seems to take whatever's in the cache, so it doesn't always refresh. Does anyone know how to make it do a forced refresh?

    Thanks,

    Well, sort of the same. You're right that EB uses the IE engine so when EB is slow, so is IE. NS seems to be faster. There are times when I click on EB, it appears to do nothing, so I start NS & load a page while EB is still frozen. At that point they seem to tie.

    My thought was that perhaps there's just traffic on the internet, although it rarely happens with NS. The jury is still out on EB.

    If it is a problem with the ISP proxy server, then re-loading via NS may fix the proxy cache, and thus, fix the page for IE.

    Try disabling the Proxy in "IE5|Tools|Internet Options|Connections|Lan Settings" and see if the problem goes away.

    I usually have the @Home Proxy disabled as it causes problems with some e-Commerce sites.

    Hi Ian:

    I checked on my Internet Option settings. I don't have anything checked under LAN settings.

    Hi Ian,

    My proxy settings are disabled as well.

    Beats me ?????

    Anyway it happens once in a blue moon, so I think
    I can live with it. I've also noticed that it only happens
    on a few particular sites.

    It might be due to rich Java content on these sites. This might make IE (or EB) go out of line and not respnod correctly to the REFRASH command.

    I guess every browser has its own littel set of limitations.

    Cheers
