DTM Production Embed Code Never Caches? [SOLVED] It is getting cached

Is this true? Or am I reading the HTTP response headers wrong?

It seems like all the scripts from DTM are not cached.  I am new to DTMs, and it just seems wrong to not cache anything client-side.

 

[SOLVED]

I was reading the headers incorrectly and DTM code is getting caching by the browser.  Thanks for all your responses.

Per your screenshot, the headers/responses indicate that your browser loaded a cached version of the script file.

The 'cache-control' in the response is set to '0' which, effectively, means that the browser should check the last-modified date and only load the file from the browser cache if the cached file is the same age or newer. (If 'cache-control' was set to 'no-cache', then it would mean the server was telling the browser to never load from cache, i.e. always load from the server.)

The '304' response confirms this - it means the browser followed the server's instructions. The browser compared last-modified dates, finding that the file on the server doesn't have a newer modified date, so it just loaded the file from its cache.

HTTP headers, including 'cache-control', are not a simple concept to understand. If you'd like to better understand, you might try reading through the spec, or doing a search to find some of the more human-readable explanations out there.
