Clearing Your Browser Cache

Often when updates are made to a website, the changes are not immediately reflected on all computers around the world. Why is this? 

It is mostly due to "caching". By default, most web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Explorer will save copies of key website files in their memory in order to display them quickly for you when you return to the website.
