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