Front-end devs: stop fiddling with the address bar every time you need fresh-baked server goodness.
## Usage Hitting [alt + r] appends the current tab’s URL with a `cachebuster` querystring key, using the POSIX time as a value. (Clicking the extension icon works too, I guess.) This addition is pushed on using replaceState and then the tab is reloaded as a callback. The history remains unpolluted. The querystring is appended if it exists or created if it doesn’t. Anchor links remain intact, too. No analytics. No special permissions. Because that’s kinda creepy. ## Version Log ---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. ## Sourcecode See how the sausage is made at https://github.com/niftinessafoot/cachebuster

- (2018-08-03) Ahn Ming Loke: Light footprint. Does what you need it to do.
- (2018-06-04) Alan Wong: When you are developing and they go "we need cache" and you go "NOOOOOOOOOO"
- (2018-04-23) Robert Yang: It is simple and straightforward. Does what it says on the tin.
