Disable Application Cache in Chrome and Safari
My question is there a similar option for chrome and safari? I know that I can view/Edit the AppCache in chrome via chrome://appcache-internals/, what I’m looking for is a way to disable it.
In Chrome, use Incognito Mode. Okay, it's probably not what it was originally intended for, but it does the job. Nothing gets cached, and now developers everywhere have a handy excuse for why they might be using Incognito Mode.
I assume there's similar 'Private Browsing' functionality available in Safari.
EDIT: I see from your comment that you want to disable Cache Manifest functionality only. Try starting Chrome from a Command Line with the --disable-application-cache switch.
