How does "Disable cache" work?

by Thomas   Last Updated May 28, 2018 11:00 AM

I have a website managed by CloudFlare and its CDN.

when we choose Disable cache in Dev Tools of Google Chrome like here, by definition the browser refreshes static files.

However, I would like to know whether the browser refreshes static files from my server or from the CDN?

Does anyone know?

Obviously from the CDN. Unless you tell CLoudflare to bypass it's cache, cloudflare will use the locally cached copies as per it's rules. Browser Dev Tools do not magically change that.
