comment Why does IE11 refuse to back navigation caching for HTTPS?
I read the entire answer. I could go through it paragraph by paragraph, but it would be quicker to say that I disagree with what you said: "I mean that IE11 does not disable back navigation caching for HTTPS pages." This flat-out contradicts official documentation which I linked to.

Make it clear that I'm quoting official documentation and add back the quotation marks

comment Why does IE11 refuse to back navigation caching for HTTPS?
IE11 has a brand new cache that is not the application cache for offline access, nor it is the normal HTTP cache, it is a completely new cache called the "back navigation cache". If you look at the linked article, it's clear that this feature is new to IE11 ("Beginning with IE11, webpages that meet specific conditions are cached when the user navigates away."), and it's unlike the usual caches. Also, it's clear from that link that this cache is disabled for HTTPS pages, are you saying that the official documentation is incorrect?

comment Why does IE11 refuse to back navigation caching for HTTPS?
I'm confused by this answer. "No it does not" what? I am definitely not talking about the application cache, I am talking specifically about the back navigation cache for IE11. As far as I know, it doesn't necessarily use the disk for this, it's in RAM. I think this answer is about something I didn't ask about.

comment How does malicious software encrypt victims' files?
This is a bit off-topic but there's loads of software on Linux that looks at file extensions and does not look at file headers.

comment Why is the same origin policy so important?
Why didn't browser vendors choose this solution: if a.com makes a request to a resource from facebook.com, that request is made without any cookies, that way facebook.com will treat it as unauthenticated. Doesn't that close the vulnerability without banning cross-origin requests?
