For development purposes I clear the cache a lot in Google Chrome and would like to be able to do it with a single click. Is this possible on Mac? I found the Click&Clean extension, but that appears to be Windows-only.

For now, I can use + shift + delete; but a one-click method would be sweet!

Unless you’re using an older version, you can’t even use the Ctrl+Shift+Del combo anymore because they removed tabbed-options and replaced them with that stupid web-page implementation. Now, simply bringing up the Clear Browsing Data dialog to clear the cache with takes 2-4 seconds instead of 0.5 seconds. :roll: – Synetech Jul 31 '11 at 22:18

+1 for the tip, but it's still not one-click. It's the same as <kbd>⌘</kbd> + <kbd>shift</kbd> + <kbd>delete</kbd>. – Patrick McElhaney Sep 8 '11 at 12:59

I use the Google Chrome extension Cache Killer for one click cache clearing on a Mac. Red means cache normal, green means Cache Killer is enabled.
