  • (2022-01-06) Morgan McKnight: Just what I wanted. Great works no hassel.
  • (2021-12-19) David S Kirk: As a web developer this extension is invaluable, it saves me so much time. I work in Salesforce and it used to be a hassle to update something in the environment and then having to clear my cache manually to see the changes, with this extension I just click a button and an otherwise laborious process took seconds. I highly recommend it!
  • (2021-12-02) Nils Thingvall: Works so well and is easy to configure.
  • (2021-11-22) Nate Skirvin: didn't clear still and wiped my google account
  • (2021-09-16) Sergio Vazquez II: This would be PERFECT if it had the option to clear everything from the CURRENT DOMAIN ONLY. But for just a simple cache cleaner, there are MANY BETTER options.
  • (2021-09-04) Ruri Aziz: sejati
  • (2021-07-28) Alan Hanley: The simplest and best cache cleaner there is.

  • (2021-05-06) qiangqiang wang: 希望有一个网站白名单的功能,在清除所有的缓存数据时,保留白名单网站的数据 It is desirable to have a whitelist feature that preserves the whitelist site's data while clearing all cached data
  • (2021-05-05) Marlon Bueno Bochi: Uso a um bom tempo e ela é muito boa! Recomendo para desenvolvedores front-end e testers também.

  • (2021-03-17) Hans-Peter Störr: Benutze ich beim Web-Entwickeln täglich 100 mal. Einfach und wirklungsvoll. Spitze!
  • (2021-03-09) tim woldt: Good extension, for the most part never disappoints me on chrome. Sometimes I have to open dev tools and hard refresh, but for the most part I like it.
  • (2021-03-03) LowBoyTeam: 希望可以添加设置 点击只清除当前tab网站的数据而不是全部
  • (2021-02-27) Darryl Reubens: Previously this worked flawlessly. However in the last few month it seems to do nothing at all. I even removed the extension and reinstalled it. I will of course put this back to 5 star if this could be acknowledged/addressed. Really appreciated this extension previously.
  • (2021-01-13) Newman Bblythe: This is a very useful program, I use a lot in my usual development, I hope developers can continue to update.
  • (2021-01-04) antecsystems antecsystems: Funciona perfecta!
  • (2021-01-02) Anthony Markakis: This should be an integrated option in most browsers, awesome and very useful.
  • (2020-12-16) Mario Müller: Funktioniert leider nicht. Das Icon wird nach der Installation kurz in der Toolbar angezeigt und verschwindet dann sofort auf nimmer Wiedersehen. Die Erweiterung ist aktiv aber nicht sichtbar und damit auch nicht nutzbar. Auch ein Neustart von Chrome hilft nicht.
  • (2020-11-11) Fernando Contreras: El mejor plugin para limpiar cache de verdad que si gracias...
  • (2020-11-08) Zeus Bot: The extension does what it's suppose to do, it removes the history, cookies, passwords, etc. It is 100% free, and works perfectly! I don't have to dig around in Google for the delete history or cookies button, while I can do it in one click. Thanks for making this!
  • (2020-11-06) Spravodlivý Kritik: Thank you it solved my problem with css files not loading up as they should thank you very much
  • (2020-10-08) Kittiphong Wiseddee: Easy to use
  • (2020-09-29) Arnold Black: It works OK, unfortunately hampered by its inability to clear the "Cache Storage", where some apps can store a whole lot of things.

  • (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 :)

  • (2020-01-10) 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.

  • (2021-12-21, v:1.1.4) Joe Lakey: Extend cookie filters to other data types?
    Hello Benjamin - I love the Clear Cache extension. One question/feature request: is it possible to extend the domain filters for cookies to other data types - for example: cache, indexed DB, local storage, file systems, etc. The extension is incredibly useful now. I use it every day. It would be even more incredible if filters were available on other data types. Thank you!
  • (2021-12-13, v:1.1.4) 苍梧浩壤: Support Service Worker Cache Clean
    Can you support clearing the cache of the current tab Service Worker? I tried this script and it solved the problem perfectly. Can the Clear Cache plug-in inherit this function? https://gist.github.com/deanhume/4b7e1f136cbee288cff9f0fc46318fbb

    Hi there, I was wondering if it is possible to set the options in this extension for Workspaces deployment.
  • (2021-05-13, v:1.1.2) Rui M Leal: Is it possible to reduce the foot print of the extension?
    I'm reading 113mb of memory consumption and 3.2 CPU can you try and reduce these? It's the extension that uses more Chrome resources from all the extensions I have installed and if it only cleans cache from time to time and when button is pressed why does it need to be so resourceful? What are these high values coming from, is it from constantly running on background? Thanks
  • (2021-04-17, v:1.1.2) ridha skhiri: Icon not visible on dark themes
    Using a colored icon or adding a choice in the options panel should resolve this minor issue.
  • (2021-04-14, v:1.1.2) Mick Seymour: Multiple machines
    Like many users, I use multiple machines with the same Google account. I have an office PC, a home PC and a laptop for site visits etc. I get a few web sites where the cookies are not saved despite being whitelisted. Over time, I have realised that this is probably due to variations between multiple pc's and browser settings having different whitelists. I have used the import/export routines. However, is there a simpler way to keep the whitelists synced? Possibly a backup to google drive which could be imported? This would allow one machine to act as a master.
  • (2021-03-18, v:1.1.2) Steve Edwards: Saving options
    Hi Benjamin, thank you for this very useful extension. It's simple and friendly. Sometimes when I open Chrome, it opens a tab with Clear Cache Options. I'm a little confused, because I don't expect my choices to change. My preference is to clear everything every time, but all options except one are cleared. I notice there's no "Save Changes" button. Do I need to choose the options every time? Thanks.
  • (2021-02-22, v:1.1.2) Ron DeJesus: Remove Cookies Globally
    Hi - love your extension but can't figure out how to clear cookies globally? I selected "Don't clear the following (slow)" and didn't add any domains but all of my cookies are still there. Thanks!

  • (2020-12-22, v:1.1.2) David Quiram: Property Names and Values for Windows Registry
    I'm looking to be able to force install and configure this extension via Registry. Would it be possible to get the property names for items like the extensionID, reload current tab, data to remove: cache, and time frame for everything. Thank you in advance.
  • (2020-11-06, v:1.1.2) Arian Hojat: Way to clear cache just for the current website?
    When you press the Clear Cache extension/button, does it clear it for everything or does it look at just the current website? I would prefer a way to do the latter (so I can keep my login cookies for Gmail etc but wipe out some random websites I may visit/test at work [I'm a web developer]). If not, then would be cool if had a way to clear cache for ONLY the current website you are on (maybe an option that sets a 'strict' or 'non-strict' option when you click this so it does the exact domain you are on if choose 'strict' option or any subdomain under the current domain if choose 'non-strict' option). For example, I am on members.exacttarget.com and want to clear the cache for *.exacttarget.com. I want to be able to press and button and do this (vs some option where I have to manually type the domain each time like the Cookie option you currently have). Thanks!, Ari
  • (2020-11-05, v:1.1.2) Randy Henry: Clear entire browser cache, or just page?
    Does this extension clear the entire browser cache, or just the current page? My Google search was specifically for 'clear current page cache chrome extension', and yours came up. But, your Overview doesn't indicate anything based on my query. I am only interested in clearing the current page cache as indicated in my search request.

  • (2020-07-24, v:1.1.2) Rodrigo: Keeping cookies
    Please, provide a "current cookies visualizer" in which we can select what cookies to keep and what to delete, so we can clean everything we don't need, but keep easy access to sites that constantly ask for a password, like Facebook and email. That's all I need right now from this app. Thanks!

    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?

  • (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.

    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 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.
