hard refresh

Why sometimes soft refresh is not enough to refresh the content of a page and a hard refresh is needed instead?

Thanks.

Normal reload

The same thing as pressing 'F5'. This will use the cache but revalidate everything during page load, looking for "304 Not Modified" responses. If the browser can avoid re-downloading cached JavaScript files, images, text files, etc. then it will.

 

Hard reload

Don't use anything in the cache when making the request. (which is equal to SHIFT+F5 No need to open Developer console) Force the browser do re-download every JavaScript file, image, text file, etc

and how the above differs from emptying the cache?

This is what confuses me.
