Chrome new reload feature

By Nethru Limited (


Chrome is very powerful in caching the web contents, so that it gives a fast experience for the Chrome users. But it is really irritating for web developers. I just found out that Google has invented a new feature for the reload button to handle the caching problem for developers.

Chrome reload menu

In the image above, you can see there is a drop-down menu for the reload button in Chrome. In the menu, you can found different reload functions.
1) Normal Reload (Ctrl+R)
2) Hard Reload (Ctrl+Shift+R)
3) Empty Cache and Hard Reload

This menu only enabled when the Chrome Dev Tools is opened (Press F12). Just right click on the reload button or hold-on the reload button, the reload menu will appear.
Hope this is helpful to improve your development workflow.
