I am currently looking into Browser Caching strategies for browsers such as IE6 to IE9, Firdox chrome an so on.

We cant use nocache, but are looking at using Expires vs max-age, ETAG vs Last-modified.

I am looking for any good documentation or sites that would help me in my research.

So far with google I have got quite a lot of conflicting personal opinions.

Thanks for any help Tony
