How to Hard Refresh Browser: Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Opera, or Safari

Anyone who uses a web browser knows about the benefits of storing stored data since it helps load pages faster.

The only problem is that web pages sometimes go through changes that are too small for the browser to notice, and you end up with web page download errors.

This is because when you load the page, the data stored in the browser cache is not the same as what the page is currently feeding, and will result in errors.

How to upgrade browser hard

When this happens, you have one of three options:

  • Make perfect browser reset
  • Make perfect clear deposits, along with clears your browser history
  • Make a hard update on the webpage that has issues

Since the latter option is the most damaging in terms of saved data, we have created this step by step article where we will show you just how you can apply a hard update on your web browser. .

Fingerprinting is a quick way to perform a hard update, and the round keys used for a hard update are similar to a regular update:

Hard Refresh Chrome (Works on Mac, too)

  2. Hold down Ctrl, and press Shift + F5.

  2. Click Ctrl + Shift + C.
    • You can also right-click on an empty space of the page and select Investigate
    • Pressing F12 works too
  3. Press the refresh button for a longer time
    • A new menu will appear under the refresh button
  4. Choose Hard reload no Empty cache and hard reload

Note that this method works with the Mac version of Chrome as well.



Hard Refresh Edge, Firefox, Opera

  1. Launch your web browser, and open a web page of your choice
  2. Hold down Ctrl, and press F5.

From a visual point of view, doing a hard update is just like hitting a regular update, although the reload time of the webpage may take a little longer.

Once the page reloads, it will be backed up with new data, and there is a good chance that the overall page layout will be very different from before.

All other browsers, especially those based on Chromium, work the same way, so be sure to try Ctrl + F5 no Ctrl + Shift + F5 on them too, because one of the two will definitely work.

Hard update: worth using?

A hard update is basically like your regular update, you just reset all the data stored for that web page only.

Because of this, you can just as well use the hard update function instead of a regular update without fear that it might affect your browsing experience in any way.

Of course, if it’s been a long time since you visited a particular page, a hard update may be required.
