I also saw this. What's strange is that it showed 1.14 for me too, which makes no sense. I've visited that page 6 months ago to install go1.15, the current version on my machine, and anyway I completely clean my browser cache every few months, so there's no way I had a 1-year-old page cached.

After forcing a clean reload of the page with Ctrl+Shift+r (firefox) it fixed itself, so yeah. Not sure what the problem is.

I'm glad It wasn't just me :) I actually did a force refresh and it still there for me.

In private browsing it shows up at 1.14 still, is it some sort of template issue or CDN issue ?

Oh, I got it. If you visit

https://golang.org/doc/install

it shows 1.16, but if you visit:

https://golang.org/doc/install?download=go1.16.linux-amd64.tar.gz

(which is the one linked from the homepage), it shows 1.14.3.

I'm on firefox on linux.

(and yes, a refresh does not fix this. I was convinced it did because I removed the ?download=go1.16.linux-amd64.tar.gz part and then refreshed, but it was the URL change that fixed it).
