Flushing Google Chrome DNS

Google’s Chrome browser keeps its own DNS cache for whatever reason. Clearing your local OS DNS cache isn’t good enough to resolve a new IP that it likes.

Rarely do I ever run into this issue on my Windows 7/8/10 machines but for Mac users it’s a more common issue.

But here’s what I found worked for a sticky DNS issue I just ran into on Windows 10:

  1. Clear OS DNS cache using “ipconfig /flushdns” in the command prompt.
  2. Go to “chrome://net-internals/#dns” in Google Chrome
  3. Click the “Clear Host Cache” button on the page that is now displayed.
  4. Clear OS DNS cache using “ipconfig /flushdns” in the command prompt.

I found this gem. Appears to be a 1.89GB or 3.78GB Hard Drive from 1991.

This guy tears it apart bit-by-bit and explains each piece. Pretty amazing.¬† His voice-over says it’s a 10MB, but the model number shows different.

I ran across a post on Facebook that peaked my interest. It lists how many terms came about. I’m going to post it here to reference.

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery…….if you had to do this to survive you were “Piss Poor
But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn’t even afford to buy a pot……they “didn’t have a pot to piss in” & were the lowest of the low. The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn’t just how you like it, think about how things used to be.
