Problem

Chrome has this nasty habit of not refreshing information directly from the server but rather refreshes a page from its cached pages.

Also, general first level support people will provide guidance from time to time that you need to clear your entire cache, cookies, and history in order to correct a problem wherein a website and your system are out of sync (i.e. not refreshing properly). This is unnecessary in most cases and often more time consuming if you have a lot of websites where you depend on keeping your cookies intact.

Resolution

The short version:

  1. Go to chrome://settings/siteData
  2. Use the Search Cookies field to find the website in question
  3. Click on the trashcan next to the entry you want to clear

This prevents the need to do a complete wipe of your history
