Ideas: Clear cache option & ability to upload custom icon

derekbtw 1 year ago • updated by Alexey Fedorov 1 year ago 4

· It would be great if there was an option to clear the cache (unless it does this automatically) or at least be able to do it with CTRL+F5.


· The ability to upload custom icons would be a great addition.


· One more thing, since this runs on Chromium, if we could use Developer Tools inside a web app, that would be most awesome!


Love the app so far though. Thanks! Especially for making it free! 👏🙏👍

Today we have updated Firework. In the new version we implemented the ability to edit web application icons. You can use it for the same service.





Here is the complete list of changes:

  • Now external links from services open in an external browser (Google services and others).
  • You can rename added services, change icon and icon color.
  • Now you can open the video to full screen (for fans of Youtube).
  • Quickly open the Firework by pressing [Alt] + [~].

I hope you like it. :)

Maybe if you added an API with a custom meta tag that the app would look for and use that tag as the icon. Or it could look for something like <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href="icons/apple-touch-icon-180x180.png"> that a lot of sites already have implemented.

Thank you for many interesting ideas!

We have added these ideas to Backlog. Maybe it will not trivial implementaton, but we will try to make it.

This issue is already in progress. I think it will be realised at 24 November.

We already use such mechanism. Nevertheless, many websites use this teg with bugs or use ugly icon. We can improve icons by users requests. You can use "Improve the icon of this web application" in the context menu.

Hi Derek, We just added cache clean-up. You can try it.
