Why this is important

Web browsers cache (i.e. store) data from visited websites to make browsing faster. This can sometimes be problematic during development, when you need to see the latest version of a page. A hard refresh clears your browser cache for a specific page. This means that when the page reloads after a hard refresh, you’ll be able to see the most recent version of the page.

The keyboard shortcut you should know

If you are on a Windows device, you can perform a hard refresh by using the following shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + R.

If you are on a Mac device, use: Cmd + Option + R.
