Summary

Many of you have surely faced problem with caching web content during development on hosting or proxy servers. It is extremely annoying especially when clearing browser cache does not help.

One of the simplest solutions is to add additional parameter to requests (etag) with some random data. This way server (actually browser too) acts as if received new fresh request bypassing cache.

After I fed up doing it manually I wrote this simple script that anyone could do during freetimie. I'm saving you this effort and offer full-functional plugin ;-)

Please send my feedback and notify of any problems.
