How to clear/flush the DNS cache in Google Chrome?

As you probably know Google Chrome has its own internal DNS cache. Is there a way to clear it without having to wait for the time out or close the browser?

Sometimes you need to flush the socket pools after flushing the DNS:

Clicking "clear host cache" in
should do it for Google Chrome, but there are other DNS caches to consider on your machine.

ipconfig /flushdns
n OS X 10.9.1 w/ Chrome 32 I needed to both clear the host cache and flush the socket pools to get Chrome to refresh the DNS cache:

Navigate to chrome://net-internals/#dns and click "Clear Host Cache"
Navigate to chrome://net-internals/#sockets abd click "Flush Socket Pools"
