There is an IE settings to check new versions of a page whenever you go to the page. Wouldn't most people want this setting? For example, for a news site. I noticed my own default was "Automatic."

Do you know if a page like Google News might always give you the latest news page, regardless of this IE setting?

MSKB article on how cached page settings work: How Internet Explorer cache settings affect Web browsing.

Based on their description I would say yes to the Google News question.

It looks like, if you go back to Google News every five minutes and IE is set to Automatically, it will not show the latest every time - but that help page implies that IE somehow knows that it should, from experience.

I also have mine set to AUTOMATIC Bob.. Why would you (LIKE YOU SAY) not want it to??

Why goto a webpage and show a CACHE instead of the latest page? (Im sure it might be FASTER loading if you disable the option but then you would have to click REFRESH (or hit F5) to get the latest -- A PAIN!!)

The new version setting would not apply to dynamic pages such as Google news or for that matter city-data. The only time a browser does not display a new page on city-data is when you click "back" or "forward". If you click a link a new page is generated and displayed.
