As experienced webdesigners know mobile phone browsers don't always cooperate. Some browsers keep retrieved pages far longer in their cache than they should, frustrating designers efforts to build attractive and efficient pages.
Requests to reload a page are sometimes totally ignored. And although some phone browsers show a screen refresh when asked to reload a page they simply re-display what's in the cache as no new requests are recorded in the webserver logfiles
Checking these logfiles shows clearly, what's happening, but not why. The only solution is to closely look at every request header sent by a phone and the HTTP header returned by the server.
To see both types of header Klaus Schallhorn Omnisearch provide a free mobile sniffer
that allows developers to record the complete session between one's mobile and the development webserver. This sniffer records request headers and replies sent by the webserver, and it stores every file returned by the server for later analysis.
The sniffer can be installed either on the developer's workstation or on the webserver. It is available in source form and is built in seconds.
