Vivaldi is holding on to cached versions of sites for too long.
Ctrl + R doesn't do sh!t.
Try either Ctrl + F5 or Ctrl + Shift + R.
Ctrl + R does not refresh the cache, by default it's the same as F5. You can change that behaviour in keyboard shortcuts.
UPDATE. Clearing browser cache did it, or i am guessing a combination of clearing cache and deleting the profile.
Ironically I am not able to login to the vivaldi forum from vivaldi... can't win. Oh well, vivaldi's flawless split screen support in combo with whatsapp and skype is what i really needed.
I join to this request. I have 32 gigabytes of RAM and embedded ssd. And there is a system one, which is a bit worse, and from Intel, which I installed later in the service and which is much better. In Firefox, in a couple of minutes, I transferred the cache to a higher-quality ssd, and then turned it off completely, specifying that only RAM be used for the cache. It is very convenient! I understand that i can be paranoid and it's not much prolong the life of ssd, but somehow I feel so calmer.

And yes, the shortcut with the command for chromium is very inconvenient, and the cache will be written to the default location every time when the browser is launched by an external application without this shortcut.
Project manager for a web development company. This is honestly something new that I realize I need but having it will save so much time and effort. Deleting my history makes it so that I have to log back into all sites I have been working on in that past hour. Usually I have a lot of back and forth so this would simply aid with that. Logging back in isn't hard, just tedious.
That being said, I just tried it on Chrome to test a popup we have upon website opening for a client and needed to do a full history delete to get it to show up again, not just using the empty cache and hard reload.
So if there are multiple levels of options of clearing cache/history that can be accessed with a right click as algy suggested, it would certainly help me out. For now, chrome when I need to use that function.

How do I clear cache and other items from the browser? Thanks.
In case you don't know, Vivaldi Browser Help Center is available by hitting F1
This is possible if the dev tools are enabled (under the network tab), but that requires opening dev tools on every page, which is not always ideal - such as if I am using an external application to do the debugging.
Would be nice to have as a per-site setting. I.e. disable the cache on sites I'm developing, but let me keep browsing as normal on other pages.
@quhno I don't know how to go to cookies. I tried chrome://settings/cookies and
chrome://settings/Cookies. I went through the regular settings menu to see all my cookies and it came up empty even though I have all cookies allowed.
