Summary

A button that when clicked will clear the browser cache, or other selected storage types such as history and download history. What gets cleared can be configured in the button's drop down menu. It is also possible to select what time period you want to clear, everything, last hour, last 2 hours etc.

Please note: when you clear the browser cache, the time option is ignored. The entire cache is removed as per the Mozilla documentation.

The extension is part of the Toolbar Buttons project and is built with the MozButton SDK. Follow us on Twitter, or get involved on GitHub.
