Quick Tip – Ignore Cache When Refreshing Web Pages

Feb 5, 2007 - 5 Comments

I’m willing to guess that a sizable portion of Mac users have been involved in some kind of web development, be it posting to a .Mac account, full fledged design, or publishing a blog. In any of these circumstances (and many others) it is very useful to know how to refresh a webpage and ignore the existing cached files. So here is how to do it in the most popular Mac OS X web browsers: Safari, Firefox, and Camino.

Application Keystroke
Safari Shift-Click Refresh button
Firefox Option-Click Refresh button
Camino Option-Click Refresh button

Phew, time for a breather, that was complex.
