How did it take me so long? Favicons

January 19th, 2014

So, it’s been an annoyance to me for a long time that whenever I need to change a favicon for a site the old one is cached in the browser for a long time.

Enter this helpful little tip: just add ?v=2 to the end of the image file and the browser will update it immediately. Tiny victories!

(I’m a little sad to say it took me this long to track down the solution, but I guess I’ll just chalk it up to being busy…all the time?)
