I've been noticing this for quite a while, but I've now tested on OSX Yosemite and Windows 10 Chrome, both latest versions, and in incognito mode. I shut down the computer every day.
Steps to repro:
- have new-nav
- go to the homepage of Meta
- click a question
- use your browser's back button to go back
- you'll see the homepage that shows events as if you traveled back in time
You can see the top question is completely different when I go back.
Right after it happened, I opened
chrome://view-http-cache/http://meta.stackexchange.com/ (before refreshing the page) and saw a recent timestamp.
Why is this? Can it be fixed? Please?
