Chrome hard reload shortcut

tips & tricks

Like many people Chrome is my main browser. I like the experience as a user and a developer. Also as a developer, I always bump into caching issues. I fail to see my changes because everything is cached in the browser.

One way of clearing cache is:

  1. Open Developer tools
  2. Go to Application tab
  3. Clear all application data

This was my preferred method before I got a tip from a colleague:

  1. Open Developer tools
  2. Right click on the refresh icon

It show 3 options to clear cache. Note that, these options are only available when the developer tools are open.
