Normal,Hard,Empty cache and Hard types of reloads in Chrome - New Feature

Hi there,
I am gonna introduce a new feature that google adds to their reload feature in chrome browsers.

normal,hard,empty cache and hard reload in chrome

I am just stumbled up on a pop up,when i am long pressing the reload button reload button in chromein chrome.

After a long analyzing,i am able to find out the real futures that those newly introduced options provides.

Okay let us move on.

Features of new reload options.

  • Normal reload - The same thing as pressing f5. This will use the cache in every way possible. If the browser can avoid re-downloading JavaScript files, images, text files, etc. then it will.

  • Hard reload - Don't use anything in the cache when making the request. Force the browser do re-download every JavaScript file, image, text file, etc.

  • Empty Cache and Hard Reload - Obviously if the cache is empty then it will have to do a hard reload. This will again force the browser to re-download everything. However, if the page makes any after-the-fact downloads via JavaScript that weren't part of page load, then these might still use the cache, which is where emptying the cache helps because it makes sure that even these won't use cached files.
But you may not able to find that pop up on each and every web page reached out,because as you know there is no reason for that pop up when you are visiting a website for the first time and there is no cached copy of that website in your local storage.

Hope you got some new info.Go and try long pressing the reload
