When browsing a website, Google Chrome (or any other browser) stores some data for speeding up the website pages load, in what's called Cache. This by default is a useful feature and saves times, as well as bandwidth (on the technical side for the hosting server).

Since all the already downloaded files such as CSS, JS..others, will be saved on your local machine, there's no need for the browser to re-load them, every time the page is refreshed or visited.

So What's the Problem?

Well, if you're like us (a web designer or developer) and often working on the same page, crafting every detail, adjusting sizes, colors, layout..etc. You come across this issue of having to do a (Hard-Refresh) to clear cache, so you get the latest modified version of the page load up. However, this doesn't always clear all the necessary cache. And you are forced to clear browser data.

The problem with clearing browser data is that, it's not always wanted. I personally, do not like to clear my history, I have many references I need to go back to, auto-fills, many other items, that make my browser, my own personalized space.

The Solution: Clear Chrome cache for a single website only

The ideal solution is to clear the cache for example .com rather than your entire browsing data. And to do so, follow the easy 3 steps:

Open Chrome Developer Tools

As the page is loaded, open Chrome Developer Tools
There are three ways to access Chrome Dev Tools
(Right-Click > Inspect)
or
(Menu > More Tools > Developer Tools)
or
(Crtl + Shift + I)

Right Click on Refresh Button

Next, go to the Refresh button in the Chrome browser, and Right-Click the Refresh button. Which gives you hidden options (Normal Reload, Hard Reload, Empty Cache and Hard Reload)

Empty Cache and Hard Refresh

Select Empty Cache and Hard Refresh. Now Chrome will empty the cache for this spesific page only. Rather than clearing entire browse cache.

Done!

The easy and effective way to clear Chrome cache for a specific page only.
