I’ve been upgrading three separate Blogs to WordPress 1.0. As part of the tuning up process I need to upload changed pages and see the results in my browser. I use Safari 1.1.1 and have to say it’s not good at refreshing. I hit Refresh; nothing happens. I hold down Shift and Option while I hit Refresh; nothing happens.
Maybe it’s not Safari, as I must say I used to have this problem with Internet Explorer. In any case, there’s only one sure way I’ve ever been able to force a refresh (without the whole foolishness of emptying the cache etc): force a refresh with iCab.
Now, I don’t really use iCab for anything else. Although it’s a lovely browser with all kinds of nifty features it just doesn’t handle Style Sheets very well. But it sure can Refresh. Once I’ve forced a Refresh with iCab I can go back to Safari and force a refresh there.
It could all be something to do with my Internet connection: cable modem into an iMac then wireless to my Powerbook. In any case, I don’t know why this happens, but I do know iCab works. If you have any thoughts then feel free to leave a comment.
