    What if you cannot (after pressing Ctrl and Shift and i) see the settings icon in the righthand bottom corner?

    Google Chrome, running in win 10 pro 32-bit, version 54.0.2840.99 m

    You don’t need to disable the browser cache.

    Simply add a version number to your CSS like this:

    And each time you update your CSS, just change the "v=1" string, which will then force any browser to reload the CSS.

    This also works for proxy servers, as when they "see" the string has changed, a new version of your CSS is reloaded.

    You can do the same thing for Javascript too.

    Hope this helps.
