Research » Browser Extensions » Clear Site Data

Selected solution is Cookie AutoDelete plus maybe more streamlined one-click execution with Clear Site Data Chrome / Forget about this site Firefox

Chrome / Edge

Without extension using Developer Tools: type Ctrl-Shift-I or F12 to open DevTools and then Ctrl-Shift-P. Now type clean site data. Also can be started as a button in DevTools > Application tab, under Storage there is button Clear Site Data

  • Clear Site Data selected
    The best one, can choose what to clear

  • Forget Tab
    one-click execution; what will be cleared can be selected in configuration

  • Clear Session
    can’t configure anything but it is nice one-click execution

Firefox

Without extension using Developer Tools: type Ctrl-Shift-I or F12 to open DevTools. On the Storage tab, we must do this for every storage we want to clear. So click Local Storage, *Cache Storage", Cookies, etc. to expand the list, and then right-click the current site name and choose Delete All. Quite slow with million of clicks :(

  • Forget about this site selected
    I like it as the button is located in address bar’s right corner; lots of confirmation options

  • Forget Tab
    is same as Chrome version

  • Clear private data now!
    is same as Forget Tab but uglier icon and without toast notification; lower quality UI

  • Forget Me Not Amazing plugin with Rule-based Auto-Self-Destructing Site Data functionality. Compared to Cookie AutoDelete, there is no “undo”

Cross-browser

  • Clear Browsing Data works on all the browsers. Almost everything is perfect, especially UI, except it doesn’t do the main thing: can’t specify clearing the data of current site. Can’t believe?

  • Cookie AutoDelete selected
    Has everything I want + Auto-Self-Destructing Site Data. Quite similar to Forget Me Not but cross-browser. UI is a bit complicated, but good enough and it helps as it have amazing Restore/Undo/Log functionality
