Overview

Front-end devs: stop fiddling with the address bar every time you need fresh-baked server goodness.

Automagically append a query string to the address bar, forcing a hard refresh from the web server. Click the extension icon or use the default shortcut ⌥R. Invoke the cache busting as often as you need—the updated URL replaces the old and keeps the browser history unpolluted. Existing query params and anchors are preserved, too. Only does what is says on the tin. No analytics. No special permissions. No tricks. ## Version Log ---2.0.0--- • Refactored codebase to reflect Google’s Manifest V3. ---1.0.3--- • Optimized the PNG set, knocking a few Kb out of the package. ---1.0.2--- • Snappy new marketing copy! I’m going to make millions! • Lowercased the querystring key to “cachebuster”. I’m sorry, I should have known better the first time. I don’t know what I was thinking. ---1.0.1--- • Various tinkers. ## Source code See how the sausage is made at https://github.com/niftinessafoot/cachebuster

This extension is exceptional for its utility and simplicity. I only wish you'd create one for Firefox too!
