I'm trying to access a URL from my PC. Using Chrome and Firefox it works. Using IE8 and Safari it fails. In IE I get the standard message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".

Both Chrome and IE both use the Internet Options from Windows.

What could be causing this problem? What can I do to try and diagnose and solve the problem?

Might IE be configured to use a proxy that Chrome isn't? – Iszi Dec 1 '11 at 6:17
Without knowing the website or seeing any diagnostic data, there are a lot of factors. – surfasb Dec 1 '11 at 6:19
@Iszi The proxy configuration in Chrome goes to the Windows Internet Option dialog which is the same one used in IE. – Anthony Dec 1 '11 at 6:56

Google Chrome caches web pages in order to speed up load times.

Visiting "chrome://cache/" will display a list of cached webpages.

I assume Firefox also uses caching.

Its related to Trusted sites setting. Go to Internet Options>Security>Sites and add your website link to the trusted list.
