I set the background to red instead of the color it normally was. Didn't change. Removed the properties all together, refreshed, the texture was still there, even though I removed the line.

OS X 10.7.5

Is there a caching issue? It happens in both Chrome and Safari.

Yes, the CSS is cached.

Try holding down the "Shift" key while clicking on the refresh icon. This will usually trigger a refresh that will reload the CSS and JavaScript.

Yes - or your can use the Web Inspector to disable cache while the inspector is open. – vcsjones Mar 24 '13 at 15:12
Note: In Chrome, you can not prevent caching unless the dev tools are open. As soon as you close them, Chrome caches, whatever your settings. If your using a server, you can serve the file via a handler, then add a timestamp to the request that the handler just ignores. Because the timestamp is always different, so the URL changes, Chrome can't safely cache the response, so it always requests a fresh copy. – Carl Smith Oct 22 '13 at 22:21
