Busting cached 301 redirects in Chrome.

The Chrome browser caches HTTP 301 permanent redirects very aggressively. This is normally a good thing, unless you’re the one setting up the 301 and you make a mistake…

There is no obvious place in chrome to refresh that cache, but there is a nifty trick.

Go to the URL:

view-source:http://cached-url/

This causes Chrome to recheck the page and will update any cached 301 rules.

Ciao!
