How does a web browser decide if the version in its internal cache is up to date? - Omegatron 16:30, July 20, 2005 (UTC)

While some content has an explicit expiry-time set, in most cases the browser sends a special If-Modified-Since-Request to the Webserver, which replies either with a status code indicating that the browsers copy is still 'fresh' or with the updated content. --Drangon 22:43, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

A "transparent" cache in HTTP is semantically transparent. What some people mean when they say "transparent proxy" is an interception proxy. This is well-known and agreed upon in the HTTP caching community.

Similarly, the most applicable term for a "reverse" proxy in HTTP is "gateway."

It's important to keep this article focused on caching, not proxies. Also, it's important to make sure it doesn't become a billboard for any particular vendor (which is why I removed the product listing, as one particular product keeps on being aggressively added.)

Google Cache[edit]

Why does google cache redirect here if there is no mention in the article. If it is ok with people I will remove the redirect. Robotboy2008 (talk) 22:54, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

This is a misleading redirect and is still here. You should have been bold and removed it! I've requested deletion now. Old Man of Storr (talk) 15:31, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Split and merge[edit]

I think that the parts of this article dealing with client-side caches should be split into a new article (browser cache is currently a redirect here). If we do that, we should merge in Temporary Internet Files, which is just the Internet Explorer instance of a browser cache. « Aaron Rotenberg « Talk « 01:23, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

legality of web caches, I would like to know more[edit]

I would like to know more about the legality of stuff like what ISPs and some sites do, keeping a "local" copy of stuff hosted elsewhere and such --TiagoTiago (talk) 01:18, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

google "cached"[edit]

Hi all,

this article incorrectly states "Google's cache link in its search results was formerly a way of retrieving information from websites that had recently gone down, or of retrieving data more quickly than by clicking the direct link. However, this feature is no longer available."

The feature is available. It has moved to the 'preview pane' as described on this site:

http://www.googleguide.com/cached_pages.html
