Image from store History Limiter Custom
Description from store A personal edit of nschneirov's History Limiter put up to share. Overall the logic remain unchanged from the original version. Main changes: - code reworks to eliminate need for jQuery and to facilitate manifest ver 2 - event page enabled - no changes to logic, no new functions The main aim of this edit is to make it event page enabled so it unloads when not needed thus saving memory. ================= CHANGELOG: 1.2 [21/04/2018] - back to using a set button to overcome the premature clear - some minor UI changes 1.1.1 [10/05/2014] - history will be trimmed right after the day value is edited 1.1 [27/04/2014] - tidying and restructuring of code - changed options page to auto save - added textfield number check - added working 0 days mode (no history)

  • (2021-08-22) Nick Noordhoek: It doesn't work.
  • (2021-02-10) Ismael Rosan: Did not function it for me. Saved only the last 3 months, despite having set it to 36 months!
  • (2019-05-23) Gerhard Schreiner: Really love the extension - I don't know whether it spies on me, but it does its job without any problems. Thank you for this :-)
  • (2019-05-05) Sean Taylor: Doesn't actually remove History. Set to 1 day, there are multiple days in history still.
  • (2018-10-24) the ༼void༽ spaghetti girl: The extension's promise to "Limit the number of items the browser will keep in history by days." is not true. It doesn't automatically limit the history saved to the last X days, you have to manually press a button which will delete all history except the last X days. The description is misleading, but the functionality is good for what it is.

  • (2014-03-21) Roger Bowen Weld: Installs Gen-Barys trojan. Don't use this extension.
  • (2013-09-02) 很不错的扩展,能够清除太过古老的历史记录,对像本人这种基本用不上历史记录的人来说很有用。但似乎将参数设为0的话没理想中的效果呀(不能阻止生成历史记录),设成1,感觉不错。

  • (2018-12-25, v:1.2) G. C.: I can't see the options to choose the # of days.
    When opening the options it just shows "History Limiter Custom" in an overlay over the the extensions page. There's no way to see the area where you actually enter the number of days you want to set.
  • (2017-09-27, v:1.1.1) Austin Bowen: Prematurely clears history while entering new number of days
    When setting the number of days, it appears to clear history before you're done entering the days you want. For instance, when I changed it from the default 100 days to 30 days (typing 3-0), it cleared everything but the last 3 days of history. Then I typed 20 days (2-0), and it left only the past 2 days of history.
  • (2016-12-27, v:1.1.1) R Jones: Extension looks old and abandoned
    Please revise the extension's upload date, so it becomes recent. This will let users know it's a current extension and not abandoned by its developer.
