    so as the title says I have tried this atlest 5 times and every time cause i could not, find ways or the programs to do the following I simply went back to FF cause I could not setup my privacy setting the same way. Dont care about how much faster chrome is if I cant set privacy the way i want it.

    1. I need addons that WILL delete ALL cookies Except the ones I specify not to delete. ( never found addon that worked reliable for this)

    2. I want a way to MOVE all cache off SSD on to my HDD or way to make chrome put all cache from browsing into memory FF can do both of these rather easy ( Chrome cant do the memory thing as far as i found and put the cache on the HHD is not as simple as FF)

    3. I want Chrome to have its History of browsing and ALL its browsing cache deleted upon Exit ( which i found to really had to get working.

    The only thing I want the browser to remember upon exit is Passwords to sites and Specified Cookies that I want saved everything thing else i want. deleted

    Last time i tried this i spent a week trying to find setting and or addons that work for this only thing i got to work realiably was the moving cache off the SSD to HDD with the

    mklink /d "New Path on Local Drive" "Path to Network Drive"
    mklink /d "C:\Google Chrome" "W:\Profiles"

    Mind you i dont like this method. At which point I said screw it and went back to FF and I starting to get annoyed with FF's buggy HW acceleration cause nvidia seems to be have quite a few drivers as of late that dont work to good with HW acceleration on ins FF

    Who are you trying to hide your porn habits from?

    j/k....to be honest, I don't like Chrome either. I use Firefox at home and IE at work.

    Best i found was click and cleanwhich only cleans that stuff upon restarting Chrome not upon Exit. Vanilla cookies works great to keep cookies i want upon exit.

    I dont get why Google is is do dead set agains leting us delete all history and browsing cache upon exit short of them loging all thats stuff for there own purposes.


    I found way to change cache/profile dir to my HDD that wasnt the mklink way

    Soon as some one cant show me actual extension that clears History/All data cache upon
    EXIT not restart of chrome I might actual swith till then i guess i staying with FF

    I don't think there is a way, incognito mode might be more along the line of what your after but i don't think it's 100% what you want.

    You could just delete stuff manually, i personally would feel safer doing that anyway, or even use Internet Explorer, anything is better than that that Firefox crap.

    I got most of what i want to be done, I already knew about Click & clean my issue with that is it "says" it will clean chrome of History/Cache upon exit but in reality it dont, all that if is still in the cache folder till chrome restarts which when it cleans it maybe i just nitpicking about that.

    Chrome have somethinh simlar to FFsync? where it saves all exentions bookmark's/passes?

    Also none of my passwords from FF are get transfered TO chrome despiste picking passwords as an option in imports
