Safari behaves in an "interesting" manner with respect to cached pages
if you have a proxy between you and the rest of the world. In particular
"refresh" and even "force refresh" (option-command-R ? I can't remember,
since I switched to Firefox some time back) simply don't always work as
you'd hope they might. Change browser and *bang*: there's the new page.
This made previewing changes on a server outside the local network via
Safari something like a cross between "painful" and "excruciating".
