  • (2020-04-03) Павел: То что нужно! Никаких лишних функций, однако для полного удобства не хватает звука: какого-нибудь щелчка или любого другого короткого сигнала, который бы означал, что всё очищено
  • (2020-03-31) Pedro Sebastián Montemaggiore: Extensión muy útil.

  • (2020-03-03) いなだ社会保険労務士事務所: すごく便利。 顧問先の企業に、F5更新をして確認してみてください。 と言っても無理なときがあるが、これがあれば1クリックで良いので説明も楽。 全企業のPCに入れていてもいいくらい。 キャッシュの意味が分かっている人にとっては必須ツール
  • (2020-02-29) Bora Ikizoglu: It deletes all the passwords(passwords.google.com). It should warn about that when you select "Form Data" or "Password". I am still not sure which option I selected caused the deletion of all passwords.
  • (2020-02-25) Nico Hirsch: Eine tolle Erweiterung und sehr nützlich! Es würde mich sehr freuen, wenn es auch ein helles Icon für den Chrome Dark Mode gäbe :)
  • (2020-02-12) Виктор Мищенко: Отлично!
  • (2020-01-20) Mihai Neamțu: Hello. I would like to see please an option to autorun at specific intervals of time. It is difficult to add this option? Thanks!
  • (2020-01-10) itguy65: I really like this tool and I use it every day in my job. I really like how you can map it to a keyboard shortcut (I've used Ctrl+R) which allows you to run it just by pressing your mapped shortcut.
  • (2019-12-18) Tom Ge: 插件有奇怪的URL缓存,短期更新不了配置,用这个搞定了

  • (2019-11-21) naffat adivasi: This is an extremely important add on which saves so much of time
  • (2019-10-29) Андрей Вербицкий: Думал кэш обновится на конкретном сайте, а слетело на всех. Предупреждать нужно!
  • (2019-10-23) Joseph Livengood: I do web development and I'm still seeing the old changes. I adjusted the setting to remove everything even cookies but still Unable to clear the catch. I am forced to use incognito just to see my changes! completely useless.
  • (2019-10-09) Simone Giannecchini: Simply perfect.
  • (2019-10-02) Alexey Lee: Просто, удобно, без лишних функций, то что надо!
  • (2019-09-19) Timo Sorakivi: Great extension and works without a glitch. Just one bug (or is it a feature): sometimes it resets back to default options. I have not found reason for this behaviour but it's a bit annoying.
  • (2019-08-08) Ken Rose: Love it. I work on the dev team and some days I click the "Clear Cache" extension 20-times a day! It's perfect. I wish more browsers would make the task of clearing the cache more accessible.
  • (2019-07-31) Marvin Heilemann: Regex for "only clear the folowing" would be great (`*.lcl` does not work), what the extension has been cleared and that only things getting cleared on the active tab.
  • (2019-07-24) Zain Farooq: Lovely extension
  • (2019-07-09) Tessa Watkins: This is my favourite Chrome browser extension! I'm a web developer, and I don't even use the default reload button (or its "hard reload" or "empty cache and hard reload" options) anymore! The button that this extension provides easily replaced it for me. It's so easy to set up too! This is seriously the best.
  • (2019-06-27) Daan Luijten: Does exactly what it says it does, and does it very well. Highly recommended for everyone working with website development, whether actual developer, publisher or stakeholder, QA etc.

  • (2020-03-27, v:1.1.2) Thomas Bono: favicon cache addition
    I just was pulling my hair out why my favicon was not updating. After a search I found a way to clear your favicon cache by pressing "control + F5" I'm not sure if this is included in the options... but it would be a nice addition. Thanks. Love this plug-in
  • (2020-02-09, v:1.1.2) Philip Thomas: can clear cache be automatically run when chrome closes?
    I was pointed to Clear Cache by someone on a forum somewhere who said Clear Cache was able to clear whatever settings you want automatically at the end of each Chrome session. If it can't do this, this would be a GREAT addition! If it can do it, I couldn't figure out where to tell it to clear settings when Chrome session ends. Could you help let me know if this is possible, and if so, how to set CC to do this? Thanks! Aloha, philiptdotcom
  • (2020-01-24, v:1.1.2) Thomas Belknap: Suddenly not working?
    I've been using your super-helpful extension for years, now. But out of nowhere in the last week, it stopped working? I click the button, it changes color briefly, and then stops without ever having reloaded the page? Thanks.

  • (2020-01-10, v:1.1.2) itguy65: Certificate refresh
    Trying to determine if this extension can refresh the pop-up prompt option for website certificates. Do you know if that is something that can be configured with your Clear Cache Chrome extension?
  • (2020-01-10, v:1.1.2) Harat's Pub: Works great but I need one exception
    I use it for a system that I have called beermenus.com so the screens keep on showing "slides" of our menu, however I had a shortcut on my desktop that everyday updates and prints the Sports events on our Direct TV of the day..(Its one of my top saving time tools) however since I installed your extension It gives me an error when trying to print the schedule, is there a way I can "prevent" the extension do changes to that web page, shortcut? It will really save mylife of tons of everyday work.
  • (2019-12-19, v:1.1.2) aseras: Firstly your app is great. My problem is it only works properly immediately after installing recently.
    Immediately after install, On the setup page all options are there and work properly. Whitelist is present and works. After this the cookies option box is gone. The app no longer clears cookies or has any option at all. The whitelist no longer works. I nuked chrome, deleted the profile folder, reinstalled the plugin and its exactly the same. I haven't forced a downgrade yet but I suspect google went and broke something without telling anyone. As usual.

  • (2019-08-28, v:1.1.2) Diretório Acadêmico Caraguatatuba: Clear Cache for a specific DNS
    I have a web-based system that uses javascript, but every month we are uploading updates to the system but this includes changes to javascript that if we do not clear the browser cache the updates have no effect on the end user screen. I would like to know with you if there is a possibility to develop such an extension for a specific site, that every time we upload an update the end user should use it to update the new information.
  • (2019-08-10, v:1.1.2) Alan Jennings: Spammy behavior
    I was using your app in an out of date browser, and it worked fine. I installed it in a new version of Chrome, and now it continuously launches an unwanted tab with settings every time I use the browser. I have checked the boxes in the settings page over and over and it does not remember them. Your Support site link and the "problem" link on this chrome web store page also does not work. The the tab that it keeps launching is : chrome-extension://cppjkneekbjaeellbfkmgnhonkkjfpdn/options.html#
  • (2019-05-30, v:1.1.2) Gary Green: Google analytics, jQuery
    Hello I notice the extension is using Google Analytics to track page views, clearing cache, etc. Can you explain: * Why this extension needs to do this * What information it's sending across and when * Where in your privacy policy you are informing users that the extension does this and if there is a way to turn it off? Also I notice your using jQuery - are there any plans to remove this? It seems unnecessary to use jQuery in a chrome extension. Cheers Gary
  • (2019-05-06, v:1.1.2) Jakub Wang: It's not clearing .js / .css
    I'm a web dev and this plugin quite often leaves .js and .css files in cache. Quite bothersome when I expect a fresh version to be loaded frequently.

  • (2019-04-20, v:1.1.2) Lily Chu: How do I activate this program to "clear" the cache?
    I just downloaded this extension to my Chrome browser and while there are options to "reload", "select which data to delete", and the "time period" of deletion, I do not see ANY button or option to activate clearing the cache. This should be really simple but I'm not seeing how to activate the program. I tried seeing if clicking the symbol or "Clear Cache" under it would do anything but nothing is shown.
  • (2019-03-27, v:1.1.2) Filipe Dâmaso Saraiva: Light icon for dark theme
    Chrome has adopted the MacOS dark theme. On the new dark UI, the Clear Cache icon is hardly visible. Could you add a light icon and ability to switch light/dark icon, either manually, or programmatically depending on the OS theme? Cheers!
