If you are just surfing the net and you don't want the cached copy then holding down SHIFT while you hit the reload button will give you a fresh copy. You can also empty your cache, and change other settings so that you don't get cached copies.
If you are building a page, and you don't want a user to get a cached copy, you can have a META tag in the head that turns that cache off. The tag looks like this:
Hope that answers your question.

You can also use these types of meta tags as well:
<META http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
<META http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache">
These really work good for me.
