    Chrome

    Click on the 3 stripes icon in the topright of the browser window and choose "History"



    Then click on the "Clear browsing data..." button in the "History" section.
    Make sure you choose "the beginning of time" and the checkboxes for "Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data" and "Empty the cache" are ticked



    You then get this confirmation screen where you can decide what to keep and what needs to go. Keep in mind that once you hit the "Clear browsing data" button there is no turning back.



    The screenshots were taken from Chrome 28.0.1500.95 m, so they might differ a bit in other versions of Chrome
