Chrome needs CTRL-F5 now and then

I'm making a website solution with HTML5 and JSON. Now and then Chrome seems to get the cache mixed up resulting in very strange behavior. With a CTRL-F5, everything works again. What can I do to avoid having to do CTRL-F5 now and then?

Your web page should be set to expire sooner or even immediately.

add a random parameter to your Ajax url.
var random = new Date().getTime();
var myUrl = "/path/to/my/json.php?random=" + random;

Open in new window

or maybe you've a nocache parameter to set to true.
