Refresh current page bypassing the cache: clear cache + hard reload

DESCRIPTION: This extension will simply add a "Hard Refresh" button to the toolbar. OPTIONS: * Select what to be cleared before reload: -- Empty cache -- Delete cookies -- Clear file systems -- Clear indexed data -- Clear local storage data -- Clear plugin data -- Clear service workers -- Clear webSQL data (These options will affect only the site in the current tab) * Select different icon (useful if you want to make it "fit" your Chrome theme). You can even add your own icon. * You can add the hard refresh button too the context menu too To change the options -- right-click on the extension icon and select "Options". PERMISSIONS: This extension doesn't need any special (heavy) permissions. It can just read your current tab url, clear the cache, storage etc. for the current tab and if you want it can add itself to the context menu

Unfortunately the option to empty the cache storage does not work every time which makes the extension useless for some web dev purposes. The basic hard refresh is helpful in many other cases though!

Thank you, exactly what I need. I have my keyboard keys mapped to other functionality, so getting to the option through the inspection tool is a pain. This is much simpler.
