chrome/chromium won’t load some domains

Sometimes chrome/chromium refuses to load some pages (in my case ironically (not .com) and You’ll get a timeout.

What is the problem? Since the affected domains do load in different browsers, I held some kind of DNS-cache responsible. A little research confirmed my suspicion. Typing  into the chromium adress bar


and hitting enter brings you into a DNS menu. Click onto “Clear host cache” and viola the affected domains are loading fine again.

edit: it seems to be a bigger problem. I discovered an over a year old bug with the internal DNS caching. It seems to be resolved but I do have the same issues described within that ticket.

Had to resolve it temporaly by entering chromium settings. Typing


in chromium adressbar and search for DNS then deactivate it.
