Aggressive caching in Chrome browser facilitating ISP agenda of throttling network activity?

Has anyone noticed over-the-top aggressive page/asset caching in Chrome over the past year or so (coinciding with the repeal of net neutrality). I haven’t been using other browsers much lately, so I could be mistaken, but I’m starting to suspect that maybe recent versions of Chrome browser are benefiting ISPs by limiting HTTP requests on the client-side.

The most glaring example that I experience is when browsing Reddit. I constantly get stale versions of content threads, forcing me to refresh pages repeatedly in order to keep up with conversations. It’s also possible this is a Reddit-specific issue, as I have to admit my Web browsing activity has been mostly Google and Reddit lately.

Can anyone corroborate this experience?
