Web dev prob:

When you modify a code then refresh your browser, It doesn't change anything and you think your code has the problem, Modifies 100+ lines and refreshed the page, still nothing happens. Asked someone about it, Fix? Fucking cache! Fuck you google chrome!

    Chrome is more relaxed if you append time stamps to the js / css files that are cached

    I’ve found “main.js?t=23354”
    Works well

    The int being the last modified time stamp of the included file

    Your profile suggests you do php, look at filectime()

    Or just disable cache when dev tools are open.

    @iSwimInTheC doesn’t always clear cache.

    Time stamp / file hash , based on file changes works as the cache is used unless the file changes, chrome sees it as a different file request

    Yes just like @JohnDoesNot says: open your dev console (you're developing anyways, right?) and disable cache on network tab, problem gone. It's not only chrome by the way, other browsers cache too.
