A play on words, the name Hard Refresh is representative of looking at things on the web with a fresh perspective.
A hard refresh in a web browser forces the browser to load the latest version of a web page from the server, bypassing locally stored cached data, and is helpful for fixing display issues caused by outdated content.
You can perform a hard refresh to see the changes we've made to your website with the following commands:
Windows/Linux: Press Ctrl + F5 or Ctrl + Shift + R.
Mac: Press Cmd + Shift + R.
