Self-Destructing Cookies - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot


Delete cookies when browser is closed or once the tab is closed to prevent tracking

This extension aims to bring "Self-Destructing Cookies" extension written by "Ove" to Chromium browsers. The extension supports two modes to deal with cookies: 1. "session" mode: delete cookies once the current session is closed (all browser windows are closed). 2. "tabs" mode: delete cookies related to the current tab once the tab is closed and there are no other tabs of the same domain. Example: Let's say you are logged-in into your email account: In "session" mode, you will be logged-in until all browser tabs are closed. In "tabs" mode, you will be logged-out once all email tabs are closed. So if you have two email tabs opened and still one tab is open, you are still logged-in. Once the other tab is closed, you will get logged-out Note: the extension does not support cleaning "window.localStorage" at this moment. I will work on that later!

Finally, a simple extension that does what I want it to - clear cookies on closing browser, with a whitelist that's easy to add to. I wish there was an option to have left clicking the icon add/remove from whitelist instead of turning the whole extension on/off, but otherwise it does its job perfectly. edit - unfortunately, at some point since posting this review, session mode has stopped working. Tab mode still works though.
