The Cloudflare purge plugin uses the Cloudflare API to purge any page of a website that serves its contents through the Cloudflare CDN. After you set your CF e-mail and API key in the options, you can purge the cache of any page of your CF enabled website. After version 1.3, you can purge the entire cache for the domain of your current tab.


v 1.8.0: Migrated the extension to use Chrome Manifest V3 for improved security and better compatibility with Google Chrome. Added a list of all user owned cloudflare zones for the current API key on the options page.

v 1.7.0: Added the ability to have multiple Cloudflare tokens and select between different profiles. Fixed a bug with the domain parsing logic. Special thanks to the active members of the community for their great feedback.
