What I suggest is putting a version number in a url and setting it to cache forever. That way your website always works for people, you never run into outdated cache versions and the pages run insanely faster.

I have taken some websites from 10 seconds load times to .5 seconds just doing this kind of stuff.
^ This. That's exactly what I just wrote above this post.
