Re: Asset Timestamping defeats browser cache?


#1

I don’t think so -

It would defeat the browser’s cache if the timestamp was the time
when the page is loaded. This would change with every refresh.

However, I believe the timestamp is the last-modified time of the
asset, so the browser will try to reload the asset only when its last-
modified time changes. This way, the browser’s cache is still effective.
