Long story short, I have a Web App Builder app that I built through the Developer edition (2.1) and it is hosted on my website.
After it is posted and loaded, if I update certain aspects of the app and change them on the web, they do not reflect due to the browser cache (as far as I am aware).
The only way to force relying on the cache (without the browser even asking for possible changes) seems to be clicking a link on the web page, or by following a bookmarked link, or by going into the URL location bar and hitting Return there (Command L, Return).
However: a longstanding known issue in Chrome, Chrome Forced Refresh does not ignore cache (and the more recent Reload/Refresh does not refresh), or maybe actually a feature in Web Kit, Dynamically inserted subresources aren't revalidated even when the containing document is reloaded, makes Chrome not clear ALL related caches when using the above methods.
I guess I could manually clear out the cache, but if there is a keyboard command to do it I'd like to know what it is (since it would be helpful for web development too).
