Removing a local Web SQL db, LocalStorage or AppCache in Google Chrome

Posted on in Environment Sencha Touch

It is a huge bummer that you can not delete a local database from your Google Chrome Dev Tools don't you think?
Well there is easy solution to do this.

Open Google Chrome and enter the following url: chrome://settings/cookies/.
Here you can search for any particular site or remove all locally stored data.

In my case I just searched for localhost, and I get an exact overview of all my Cookies, LocalStorage and Web SQL databases...
Awesome, I can double click on it, and it will ask me to remove the database. Click on the remove button and it is gone!

What about Application Cache?
How can I remove that?
Use the following url and press the remove link for the corresponding site.
