Default Chrome reload

I'm used to the browser actually reloading a page when you press F5, but it seems that F5, whatever it may mean in Chrome, doesn't mean reload.

It seems to be more along the lines of "Redraw what you've already got cached"

It about drove me nuts yesterday across two different projects. I'd put a new index.html page up on a site I'm working on, but Chrome refused to see it. Kept displaying the old page, no matter how often I F5'd or even shut it down, reopened, revisited the page.

"Typo? .htm vs .html? Wrong directory? I'm going mad?"

"OK, I've eliminated the others, it must be the 'mad' thing. So in keeping with that, I'll just fire up MSIE and ..."

It worked. Correctly. New page appeared.

Later, I went into Chrome's settings and deleted all history/cache/everything. Gave it the full-on "Dave's Daisy, Daisy" treatment. And it worked.

For a while. Then when I went onto another project, I couldn't get it to update a couple of pages in response to changes in the HTML or CSS files.

Finally, I noticed that right-click + Reload seems to work where F5 doesn't.

Has anyone else noticed this? Am I imagining things? And if so to the first and no to the second, what's the point of Chrome's F5? Keeping morons like me occupied and out of the CSS streets? (It does work, if so)
