Surprises: OpenAI uses DuckDuckGo icon services

ChatGPT plugin platform relies on the to get your plugin’s favicon.ico.

The trouble is that DuckDuckGo caches your favicon.ico and won’t even try to get your latest favicon.ico if you decide to change it.

OpenAI would become the new world leader soon on the web. Why would they rely on a service like that? It is beyond me. They should’ve just dictated where the favicon should reside.

Now, could anybody please advise me of how to force the DuckDuckGo to refresh the icon caches?
