Is there a way in chromium that I could clear the favicon or trick it into reloading it from the server? I have a site and recently remade the favicon and now it's not changing in chromium whereas it's changed without glitches in opera.

I don't quite understand. When you upload the favicon, it should look the same in all browsers...

it's cached on my hd and refused to pull it from the server so it's showing the old image, I got opera after changing it and it pulled the new image from the site.

In Firefox, try Cmnd + R + Shift (Mac) or Ctrl + R + Shift (PC). Do this when on your website and see if it works, at least in Firefox. Try clearing your cache as well.

You can hit F5 and try to reload from the server, that sometimes helps. Likely, you'll need to clear you cache and reload the page. I know when I make changes it takes a few times before I see it in all the browsers.
