  • (2020-11-23) DreamingCodes: Give the possibility to activate it only on some sites and links. Maybe a regex search wouldn't be bad.
  • (2020-09-01) Snowcone Guy: Doesn't work. If I start typing a letter in the address bar, Chrome still automatically suggest previously visited websites.

  • (2018-07-02) App is currently not working, I have to remove and then add it back to chrome for it to work. When I have to this every time I open chrome
  • (2018-06-26) Adam Wade: Is there a way you can get rid of "most visited"? Kind of screws up the whole purpose of this extension.
  • (2018-06-18) Vladi Aleksandrov: Works great for now! Others do not.
  • (2018-06-08) LazyDom: in the recently closed tab my history didnt get deleted
  • (2018-02-21) ill skills: It erases your history!
  • (2018-02-06) Pushpraj Singh: C'est parfait!
  • (2018-01-14) Noitrex: Best one in the market. It does the job better than Click&Clean because i don't have to close the browser. And the good part is that i don't have to use something like new tab redirect to hide the new tab most visited thumbnails wich are basically parts from your history.
  • (2017-12-18) crx nineseveneight: That's what I was looking for. Nothing shows up in history even while you're browsing.
  • (2017-12-03) Tommy DeNato: Freaking awesome! I actually went out of my way to create a G+ profile just to leave this review. I was using Click & Clean before, but its stopped working (Im a Chromium user). This works flawlessly....thanks so much!
  • (2017-11-30) Shlomo Avdiel: it performs as advertised. good job!
  • (2017-11-19) Frank Werner: well done. fixes what should be a standard feature of chrome
  • (2017-06-22) Jonathan Vogelbusch: The perfect addon. Now with a option to keep Strg+Shift+T intact!
  • (2017-05-26) Richard Bryan: There are millions of extensions out there, but only a handful that are worthwhile. History Disabler, imo, is one of the few. Well conceived, it helps protect my privacy simply and completely. Small footprint. It doesn't steal info from me and doesn't beg for money. Thanks.
  • (2017-05-21) callstrike: poco conocida pero muy efectiva
  • (2017-05-16) Neonred: This is the smallest chrome extension that prevents history, if you right-click the Icon, then you can select remove Icon from Chrome menu :) BUT, it does not incorporate plausible deniability. That if the plugin is off save history and if the plugin is on then do not save New history and keep old history. I wish it did that.

  • (2016-04-12, v:1.4) Jesse Roland: Clear remembered downloads.
    Is there anyway that you could also build in the functionality to clear remembered downloads as well? Love the extension!
