A easy way to refresh browser

A easy way to refresh browser

Sometimes when debugging web codes, we need to frequently access same URL, like:
http://localhost/path/test.html
The browser normally uses its cache instead of reloading new URL, so probably *NOT* refresh your CSS/JS effects. So you have to clear browser cache to force the reloading; or hold on Alt-key which sometimes may not work.

Here I introduce a simple way to refresh URL: adding a dummy parameter followed by URL. This way will force browser to reload URL instead of using cache.

# first time:

http://localhost/path/test.html?t=1

# second time:

http://localhost/path/test.html?t=2

# third time:

http://localhost/path/test.html?t=n

...

Every time only if the parameter t is changed, the URL will reload.
It is much better than clear browser caches, which will delete all your data which you don’t want to at all.
