When browsing a website, Google Chrome (or any other browser) stores some data for speeding up the website pages load, in what's called Cache. This by default is a useful feature and saves times, as well as bandwidth (on the technical side for the hosting server).

Since all the already downloaded files such as CSS, JS..others, will be saved on your local machine, there's no need for the browser to re-load them, every time the page is refreshed or visited.

So What's the Problem?
