Google Gadget Cache

June 9th, 2008 · 7 Comments

Today I was updating one of our Google Gadgets at work and after almost an hour of changing random stuff in the code with no different result on iGoogle I realized I had forgotten about the cache!  Google seems to cache XML gadget files and Flash content for at least 1 hour.  I haven’t found a way to disable this per gadget (although I spent no time looking) but what you can do is use the Developer’s Gadget to control the cache for each gadget on your homepage.  This is a must have if you’re doing any type of Google Gadget development… add it to your iGoogle page by clicking here.
