Cache'd info won't go away


I can't seem to be able to totally clear out Chrome's cache. When I bring up the Workspace, the some old code continues to appear in the browser even though I have changed it many times in the workspace. I have tried to clear out the browser but the old code still poops out. Does anyone else have this problem? its very annoying!

ctrl + f5 should work but if not you can disable cache in the developer tools. Also you may want to look at a plugin which adds a button to clear cache

If you download the Web Developer extension for Chrome You can disable the cache temporarily, so you can be sure you're getting live changes.

If you're working from MAMP or a similar server, you can set the cache time to 0 too.

Ok I will try that! Thanks Hayden!

Sweet! I will try that as well. Thanks a bunch! :-)
