While Chrome does not provide a UI for clearing localStorage, there is an API that will either clear a specific key or the entire localStorage object on a website.
//Clears the value of MyKey window.localStorage.removeItem("MyKey"); //Clears all the local storage data window.localStorage.clear();
Once done, localStorage will be cleared. Note that this affects all web pages on a single domain, so if you clear localStorage for jsfiddle.net/index.html (assuming that's the page you're on), then it clears it for all other pages on that site. See HTML5Goodies - A Peek into Local Data Storage in HTML 5 for more information.
Chrome does not yet provide an interface to manage HTML5 local-storage, so to delete local-storage in Chrome, you will need to either manually search for and delete the file in the
Local Storage sub-directory in the User Data. You can find it by looking for a file that contains the domain name.
You can also use the Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data entry in the Clear browsing data dialog (
chrome://chrome/settings/clearBrowserData or Ctrl+Shift+Delete), however it does not give you fine-grained control at the site level.
For the record, jsfiddle.net does not use local-storage for its frames, it uses standard cookies which you can delete in
chrome://chrome/settings/cookies. Just type
jsf in the edit box, then click the
window_sizes cookie, then the
[Remove] button. To delete all cookies at
jsfiddle.net, just click the
jsfiddle entry (not any spefcific cookie), and press Delete.
I cannot yet comment, but the accepted answer is not 100% accurate anymore since the newest Chrome update. Chrome has got a new material look for all of the settings; and the link to clear all local storage for a specified host is now slightly different:
If you have Chrome Developer Tools you can see or change the localStorage values
- F12 or CtrlShiftI or ⌘OptI
- Local Storage
It is organized by domain. (localStorage is specific to a domain, not a page.)
Highlight the key/value pairs and click X if you want to delete them.
chrome://settings/siteData did not work for me
This is what works for me in Chrome version 61 :
- scroll down to All cookies and site data, and in the "Search cookies" input enter "localhost"
- then click Remove all shown , or hit the delete button
This clears not just cookies but also local storage and your local databases too
