Self-Destructing Cookies

Description from extension meta Delete cookies when browser is closed or once the tab is closed to prevent tracking
Image from store Self-Destructing Cookies
Description from store 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!

Latest reviews (2019-04-10) Gowron Martok: This is the only really thing that works for me. I use it on all browsers. THANKS SO MUCH GUYS! (2018-06-10) Chris J: Currently does not handle sub-domains very well, in tab mode. Closing a tab with www.domain[.]com also destroys the cookies for other.domain[.]com, even though other tabs for the domain are open. Has potential, I'll up the stars when problem I'm having are fixed.
