Get in control of your privacy automatically deleting the unused cookies created in each tab when you close it.
This extensions deletes all the cookies created in a tab (which are not used by other tabs) when you close the tab. In this way your privacy is guaranteed.
For example, as long as you stay on gMail, you are logged in, but once you close that tab (and all the others which are or have been on a Google site) the tracking cookies of Google disappear. Same for Facebook, once you close all the tabs which opened Facebook, its cookies disappear, so other sites cannot track you around the web.
Clicking the little cookie-icon in the URL bar allows you to keep the cookies for the current site. Just in case you want to keep the ones of your blog or your email, for example.
If you find a bug:
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so you can help me debug it.
Unfortunately Google does not allow me to email you back directly so leaving
just a comment is often not useful.
* Version 1.0.3, fixes bug reported by "Nemo" in which cookies were not
deleted when closing the window instead of the tab. The bug in chrome still
exists (see below) but a work-around has been implemented.
* Version 1.0.4, fixes bug reported by "rEnr3n" in the parser of second level
domains where sites like "google.co.uk" were reduced to "co.uk".
* Version 1.0.5, fixes bug reported by "LaTondre" in the parser of second level
domains. Intranet domains should now be correctly parsed.
* If there is only one window open, closing the window instead of the tab does
not clear the cookies. The issue is not in the extension but in Chrome, it is
a known bug (http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=50333).
In version 1.0.3 I implemented a work-around which clears all the cookies but
the ones to keep when the browser starts. It should work for now.
