Why does my CSS have issues refreshing?
I'm not sure where the issue stems, however, my CSS isn't refreshing each time I load the page. I've been working with CSS for a while now, and never before encountered this issue. I found a solution: "cmd + shift + R", which refreshed the page with the latest updates I made. However, I still don't understand why it's behaving this way.
Could someone shed light, please?
Cache will most likely be your problem
Hey, quick tip! Use the incognito function to cure these kinds of headaches. (Operating under the premise that you're hitting a cache.)

As the others have stated it's most likely that your browser isn't refreshing the page per se. Instead it is drawing from a "cached" version of the page - this is generally done to reduce load times. Since, in production, a web pages' CSS is not likely to change so often, the browser will save the html, css etc. files and when you reload the page, it'll simply use those saved files, instead of calling for new files from the server.
One trick you can use is to reload using "Ctrl + Shift + R" (On Windows) to force the browser to request a new set of files from the server.
Hope that helped!
