We all have our habits of browsing the web and we’re not about to change them.
Ever wish you could only CERTAIN websites from your history without deleting it EVERYTHING? Because honestly, what’s more suspicious than always clearing your history after you’ve used the computer?
Meet your browsing hero! Zero Footprint. It allows you to specify certain domains to delete from your history, let it be porn, Facebook, or some silly sites full of cat images.
How it works? Go about your browsing, close the browser. The next time you open Chrome, all the domains you set to be deleted, will magically disappear! Your history looks like nothing ever happened! Automatically deletes history upon browser re-launch!
We provide TWO easy ways of enabling protection either by clicking the icon in your URL bar, or by entering the domain on your options page.
In addition to this feature, we’ve partnered up with Safety Redirector to incorporate their security rules. This FREE ADDED BONUS means that you’re getting the same redirection rules and security from Safety Redirector and the selective history deletion all in ONE EXTENSION! For more information on SafetyRedirector please check out their website.
Zero Footprint : Selective History Eraser is distributed for free and is supported via selected affiliate links.
Nice! Now I don’t have to search through the history and delete websites manually.
It causes pages to take ages to load. Only just realised this extension was the issue. DO NOT USE.
It has some sort of loop/memoryleak issue.
Using in Vivaldi; besides the fact this was apparently unable to remember my settings (so I had to set it up again constantly), I noticed it was hijacking some of my browsing. Particularly, I noticed I wasn’t able to browse to http://www.booking.com from an hotel; I initially thought it was some kind of foul play by the hotel but after trying VPN, tethering and a few other things, with the same results, I began disabling extensions and ended up pinpointing this as the culprit.
Almost immediately redirected me to a spam link
This plugin redirects my Google searches to their affiliate links. uBlock origin was alerting me every time I went to google.com. I disabled each Chrome extension to figure out what was going on. This extension is redirecting traffic for profit. I’m disabling and deleting this extension.
This ended up being a redirect to their web page eventually. LAME!
Couldn’t tell it does anything. No icon, nothing. Went to options page, doesn’t save URLs, never deleted any history, even after multiple times restarting Chrome. Needs work!
is not working properly. settings are lost without any warning.
Please READ the instructions guys, the scrubbing takes place AFTER the extension is restarted. Great extension does exactly what it says.
Clicking the Scrub History button gives no feedback of whether the action completed or not, so I searched for the domain I had added and it was still listed in history. I retried, using just http:// and http://www. as the lead, no change. I still see the results. Also, it hijacks your affiliate tags.
This extension hijacks the affiliate tags for Amazon (and I’m not sure what other websites).
All Amazon links, regardless of existing affiliate tags get changed to “eraserhist-20”, and all amazon links that have no affiliate tags get “eraserhist-20” added to the URL.
Adding tags without any kind of notification is deceptive. Hijacking tags is dishonest.
I was looking everywhere for an extension like this that actually worked and could be used in Opera, but until now every one I tried either didn’t function like it promised or simply didn’t work (in Opera). This one, however, does exactly what I longed for — URL-specific history cleaning. I also love how the extension only invokes the automatic erasing upon launching the browser, which is much more convenient than preventing a URL from recording history at all (because who needs to hides history items from themselves during an ongoing browser session?)
My only technical suggestions are to provide some sort of visual feedback after using the “Scrub My History Now” button and to implement wildcards and patterns in blacklist entries.
