Clear for Chrome 1.1

When it comes to dealing with your browsing history, there are not really many options available to you. The first option is to do nothing and just leave all of your browsing records stored on your hard drive, but it may well be the case that you would like to cover your tracks for one reason or another. Chrome does give you the option of clearing your entire browsing history, but it is possible that you have some records that you would like to keep.

In this scenario you could manually work through your browsing history and remove reference to web sites that you would prefer were not stored for other people to potentially access. This is obviously not ideal and it could involve a good deal of work, and this is one of the reasons that Chrome include the more private Incognito mode in which your browsing history is not saved.

But in order for Incognito mode to work, you need to remember to use it – and who hasn’t finished a browsing session only to retrospectively wish that they had used this more secure mode? This is where Clear could help you out. This is a Chrome extension that can be used to delete your browsing history in as way that works best for you.

You are not limited to deleting everything on one fell swoop, nor required to manually pick what you would like to keep or delete. Instead, Clear enables you to right click on any web page and use the context menu that is displayed to delete you browsing history for the past hour, day, week or all time. The same options are available for your browser cache and cookies.
