Hey! :) I was just wondering if there is a mac equivalent for CTRL f5. For those of you who don't know, in windows you can click CTRL f5 to reaload the page and its cache. CMD R on a mac just reloads the page, but not the cache. I need to do this as im a web developer and i need to be able to reload the cache on the page for the CSS styles to "cache" up (see what i did there :P). I use Google Chrome. Can anybody help me on this?

Pressing f5 on a Mac (fn key and then the "increase keyboard brightness" button) also reloads the page. I'm not sure about the cache part though. Is there a specific way to tell if the cache is reloaded too?
