So, FWIW, Safari and Firefox differ from Chrome on one particular point:

In Chrome, even if you clear the cache, it keeps the dynamically loaded items
around persistently, until you navigate away and come back. In Safari and FF it
appears that it DOES re-download if you clear the cache.

However, *all 3* browsers have the problem that if you do a shift-refresh, it
doesn't re-validate the items that are loaded later on-demand. So those get
incorrectly loaded from cache.

Perhaps you may say this is intentional by design. But what is the point of
allowing shift-refresh to reload a page's resources if in fact it only reloads
*some* of a page's resources (those that are loaded immediately at page-load)?
