  • (2020-03-15) Dorian Zapała: Give another icon when 'live reload' is off, please
  • (2019-11-15) Josh Magee: CSS not updating in Chrome 78.0.3904.97 on Mac. Any suggested ideas/fixes?
  • (2019-11-12) Rey C: Awesome, works like a charm.
  • (2019-09-25) Saeideh Mardan: It doesn't work with php frameworks like laravel :( I tried people's suggestions and fixes but still no way to get it to live update my page. It goes to an infinite loop and you have to uncheck the live reload, then check it back again. It also prevents the page to navigate to another one. So strange.
