The Real Culprit here involves something called a "CACHE."
READ ON . . .
When using a Web Browser, files and web pages that you access are often stored, or "Cached," to make those pages load more quickly when it's accessed again in the future. This is a standard feature in all Web Browsers, regardless if on your Computer, - your Tablet, and Yes - Even on your Smart Phone!
At times, changes to a website won't be seen automatically, as Your Web Browser is accessing a previously cached version of the website, and NOT the most recent version prepared by the WebMaster.
A common way to address this issue is to clear a Web Browser's Cache of Temporary Internet Files. Clearing a Web Browser's Cache does not damage any information stored in a browser such as bookmarks or your homepage. Instead, it simply makes the web browser think that you have not visited a webpage before, and -- LOADS THE NEWEST AVAILABLE VERSION OF THE WEBPAGE.
The next time you access a webpage after clearing your cache, your Web Browser will instead load and display the most recent version of the website, as it will have no previous versions stored.
