This is usually fine. It also improves performance since you don't have to re-download the same data when you view the page (or another page on the same website) again. However, it also means you may not be getting the latest version of the data.
Sometimes a simple reload isn't enough. Browsers often just reload the HTML when you use the standard Reload or Refresh command. To make sure you reload everything, including all the assets referenced by the page, you can use a "Force Reload" or "Hard Refresh" command.

In some cases, I've had to force reload a page two or three times in order actually reload all the assets. If a page still doesn't look right after multiple force reloads, you can always try another web browser to confirm you are viewing the latest version of the webpage.
