Updating a page in a browser
Say you know that a web page has recently been changed, but no matter how many times you click Refresh/Reload, the new version just refuses to come up. What do you do? Hold down Shift, then click. This will force the browser to go out and download the page again, instead of lazily telling you it has the latest version.
