Front-end devs: stop fiddling with the address bar every time you need fresh-baked server goodness.
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
• Optimized the PNG set, knocking a few Kb out of the package.
• 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.
• Various tinkers.
