#Brave-laptop dev: interesting issue part 2

This is a continuation from my previous blog, I've done further investigation and discovered that the favicon was being invalidated (redownloaded) every frame.

and upon further investigation I found that the response header contained the following
I did some research and found that modifying this is no easy task and that this setting forces the Favicon to be redownloaded  every time it's updated. Which in this case was every frame since it was being redrawn along with the gradient affect that follows the mouse.
