Error 310 (net:: ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS) is a Google chrome browser’s redirects loop error code or you can say an error message and it mainly shows that the website what you are trying to open is sending you or you can say redirect you to some other web page and that web page also do the same thing and creating this redirect loops.
At the past, when some browsers having this problem, it was just continuously loading the page again and again and makes the browsers not responding, but the things are changed now and browsers get smarter and smarter and now when every time a browser finds some redirects loop kind of problem with some web page, it just stops the loading tasks and shows you the error code called ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS.
Recently I got two different emails describing about two different problems with the same error code at the different conditions and here they are:
At present, I encountered a problem with my Google Chrome (51.0.2704.103). When I try to log in my Youtube and Gmail account, I got the error says “This webpage has a redirect loop” error instead of Login or Inbox.
I’m receiving this error called, “This webpage has a redirect loop” while opening one of my website in the Google chrome browser. When I tried opening it in some different browsers like Firefox, IE and even Tor, It worked perfectly fine. Chrome can really create problems sometimes and any suggestion would be appreciable.
So, as you can see you can get this problem on a single or multiple websites and maybe also on your own website and yesterday I again got some another mail about this same error so, that’s why I decide to make an article about it to show you what this problem is and how you can easily fix them even whatever the condition is with you.
