    I've noticed this on my iPad since the upgrade to iOS 5, but just noticed it on my iPhone for the first time today...

    A lot of times when I'm reading a web page and press the back button, I'll be taken to a previously cached version of that page, from eariler in the day or the day before.

    For instance, it's something I see a lot on a forum, or a link aggregator like Reddit. I'll click a link, hit back, and then end up at an out-of-date version of the page.

    Anybody else having this problem?

    This problem is not exclusive to iOS, Safari on my Desktop does the same thing.

    It is annoying.
