#first. Page reload modes are available on Google Chrome

When you need to reload a web page, you'll usually click on the icon in the address bar, or use the key F5, or use the key combination Ctrl + R on the keyboard.

However, this is only a normal mode, there are 2 more page reload modes that Google Chrome offers but it is hidden, you have to activate it in order to use it, they include:

  • Normal Reload: Normal page reload mode that we use often (F5)
  • Hard reload: The web browser will reload the web page with all images, text, sounds, javascripts, etc. except the website cache. Use the combination (CTRL + F5 or Ctrl + Shift + R)
  • Empty Cache and Hard reload: Just like the mode Hard Reload above, but this time the browser will remove the cache (cache) of that site, reload time will be longer, the longest of the three types of page reload.

So why do we need to add 2 types of page reload Hard Reload and Empty Cache and Hard Reload again?

Yes ! That's because every time we visit a web page, the web browser stores a copy of the image, text, audio, javascripts, etc. in the cache to help shorten the access time. at later times.

The web browser will prefer to use cached versions of files rather than reloading all new content of the website.

That's why you may not be able to see the new content on the web page even though it has been changed before, because you still use the old copy in your browser cache.

Now we have to use it Hard Reload and Empty Cache and Reload to clear all cache content and reload the entire web page to see new content.

#2. How to enable other types of page reloading on Google Chrome

To activate these 3 modes, on the web page you want to reload with Hard Reload or Empty Cache and Hard Reload then do the following:

Perform: Click on 3 dots => More Tools (Other tools) => and select Developer Tools (Developer tools).

Or The fastest is to use a key combination Ctrl + Shift + I for myself.
