The Joys of WebDev (and Google Chrome software updates?)

I was just working on Roomie (instead of studying for exams) and I cam across a very strange error.

Joys of Webdev

I was making some very benign changes to the navigation bar on the left side of the website, when I refresh the page to see the “on/off” buttons interchanged for the favicon (stretched horribly, of course).  I refreshed the page in Chrome, verified the URL of the image, and finally looked at just the image.  Then I looked at the URL.  The favicon?  How strange.  I viewed the URL in Firefox, and saw the correct picture.  Next I viewed the URL in Incognito Mode in Chrome.  Again the correct picture.  How could the image appear differently?

I can’t be sure, but I think the problem could be with Google Chrome’s updating mechanism.  After trying various troubleshooting techniques, including restarting the browser, I went to the about page to see if the thing had updated.  It seemed like it had, but to make sure I went to my laptop.

Google Chrome Update

So that seems to be it.  Restarting and/or clearing the browsing cache fixed the problem.  It’s nice that Chrome updates so transparently, but apparently it doesn’t always work perfectly.

  1. m_) Working on Roomie you’ll learn much more than what college/university can teach.

    m_) keep it up, although i’m still a BIT unsure what the idea of Roomie really is..save from knowing is a coding program.
