Yes, I know it was on done purpose, but I disagree people expect to see old contents. That's probably what I expect when I open the browser in my mobile, but not in my desktop. I save the session to ensure I don't lose the tabs I had opened when I closed the browser, but I want to see the updated contents when I open the browser again the next day, for example. I was very surprised the first time it happened to me. At least for bugs I knew there were changes thanks to the bug mail.
