How do you clear Chrome’s 301/302 redirect cache?

I incorrectly setup a redirect in Cloudflare, fixed it, but Chrome is still redirecting to the previous 301 URL. How can I clear my local redirect cache in Chrome?

@SibertJan 03, 2023 — To clear your local redirect cache in Google Chrome, follow these steps:

Open Chrome and click the three dots in the top-right corner of the window.
Click "More tools" and then select "Clear browsing data".
In the "Clear browsing data" window, make sure that the "Cached images and files" option is selected.
Use the drop-down menu to select the time range for which you want to clear the cache. To clear the cache for all time, select "All time".
Click the "Clear data" button to clear the cache.
Note that this will also clear other types of browsing data, such as cookies and history. If you want to clear only the redirect cache, you can use the Chrome Developer Tools to do this.

To open the Developer Tools, click the three dots in the top-right corner of the Chrome window and select "More tools" followed by "Developer tools". Once the Developer Tools are open, click the "Application" tab and then expand the "Cache" section in the left-hand panel. You can then use the "Clear storage" button to clear the cache for the current domain.
