Chrome is a mess (still way better than other browsers). Few days ago, I received this error, “This webpage has a redirect loop” while opening one of my site in the chrome browser. When I tried opening it in the Firefox, IE and even Tor, It worked absolutely fine. Chrome can really create problems sometimes. Anyways, it’s easy to solve this problem. It just takes a couple of minutes to solve this irritating problem. The error page itself comes with some instruction to solve this problem. This is also called Error 310 as you can see it in the screenshot given below.
Here is the screenshot of the error,
I solved this error within 5 mins, Here is how you can do it as well. One thing I would like to clear is that, this problem is neither because of your computer and nor this is a server-side issue. It’s just the cookies creating some problem. You don’t need to contact your developer to solve this issue, just follow the instruction give below, and it will be done within minutes. By the name it implies that it might be a redirection problem such as 301 etc. but it has nothing to do with it.
