Disable caching whilst using Chrome developer tools

Google Chrome will cache asset files such as js and css files that’s normally helpful when browsing a site. However, when working with assets it can be annoying to have to navigate the to js/css file and refresh it manually to see the changes.

Thankfully you can disable this functionality while the developer toolbar is open, click on the network tab and then check ‘Disable cache’ from then on no files will be cached and any changes you make will take effect right away.

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
