    Google Chrome how to delete history on exit

    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum and just registered myself to be able to post this question.

    Prior to registering I have searched through the forum but couldn't find an answer to my question. I would like to be able to delete or clear my internet history automatically when I close my Google Chrome browser.

    I have found a workaround solution, which is described on this webpage about clearing Google Chrome history on exit but I would like to know if there really isn't a more elegant solution instead of installing an addon.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    As far as I know, there is no more elegant solution unfortunately.

    Surely that is what incognito browsing is for?
