    Reset the cache (delete it for this particular website).
    Most browsers will reset it if you hit ctrl+F5. Or you can always go to the options and delete cache from there.

    Loading every page every single time you visit that page is a burden on multiple entities (host servers, your ISPs) etc.
    So what the browser does is try to save a snapshot of the page at a particular instance. That is your cache. When you reloaded the page, you got to see the same snapshot again. You just had to reset it (tell your browser to get the latest snapshot/what the page currently looks like, and remove the previous one).
