    Default forcing chrome to clear cache


    Is there some kind of meta tag in HTML to force Chrome to clear its cache before loading the page? Whenever I make a change to my website, in order to see it in Chrome, I have to hit F12, right-click the refresh button, and select "Empty Cache and Hard Reload". There must be some way of doing this automatically, like in an HTML meta tag.

    I was looking into this last week actually. I have a website to update in a few days, so I didn't get to try it yet though. Put this in the html on all the pages for the site.

    <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" />
    <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
    <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" />
