Quickly clear browser cache with a keyboard shortcut

Clearing browser cache is a common occurrence when testing and debugging web applications. It’s useful to be able to do this with one click or keyboard shortcut rather than open the browser’s ‘Clear browsing data’ menu. I am using Google Chrome so I will install the extension Clear Cache.

Once enabled a Keyboard shortcut can be configured at the bottom of the Chrome Extensions page.

Capture

Now cache can easily be cleared in one command rather than accessing any other menus.
