That goes fine usually with pages, and even with php files which
I can open as text in a new window, then use Shift reload or Ctrl-F5.
But clicking a zip file opens it for download, and no recurse to

Yes, I see that. The file is there, so near, but so far...
I tried using opera now, with the same result: I get an old version
from last summer. This is so annoying.
I wonder how others fare.

I update a recipe, announce the update on the Cookbook page, or even

is behaving so badly, because they install an old version....

Is there no better way?
