maybe i'm wrong
but it seems that opera7.10's cache checker behavior similar as IE

it's like IE->tools->options->general->**temp**->set**->auto**

in old version of opera: back/foward/navigate will not check img/scripts, only document
even you press F5,ctrl+f5
if HTTP header tells opera it's cachable, it don't even reload document
it's bad for dyn-pages for BACK/FORWARD, cos dyn-pages have to tell opera not to cache, and still not able to reload-script when refresh, this is evil for webdevelopers

in ie, back/foward/navigate is same as old opera
but a refresh will cause checking scripts/document
an ctrl+f5 will check everything with "no-cache"
it's nice for dyn-pages, that allow caching and sill dyn

i thought the way IE does is the best for both static-page and dyn-page

ie7.10 changed it's old behavior, getting close to IE
but not exactly the same as ie

Wow, I hope you are wrong, Xuefer. I love the way Opera has handled back/forward by always giving you the cached page with no muss, no fuss. It's a major time saver, and even allows me to reference multiple versions of a dynamic page.

I'd hate to 'upgrade' and lose that functionality. I've done that too often with too much software.

maybe i didn't explain clear enough
maybe u misunderstood me

i'm compareing old opera/ie/new opera

while document is cachable, and cached

old opera: load cached data even u press F5/ctrl+F5

ie: often load cached data, but check date when f5(even cachable), and reload whole file when ctrl+f5(even cached)

new opera: load cached data when back/forward/navigate to new page
but for F5/ctrl+F5: check all date of non-document resources

differences is that i don't know which hotkey/function is equal to ie's CTRL+F5 which use "no-cache"
