Could you provide the option of deleting history cache cookies passwords (whatever you select) every time you close the browser.

Thanks.

yes, really important feature to prevent tracking etc.

Agreed, and I'd say this should include flash cookies. If the browser supports JavaScript (which it almost certainly does) something like NoScript is vital.

There is now a possibility to clean history, cookies, passwords and cache in browser settings. To me sounds like "private browsing" mode is what would suit your usecase of automatically cleaning on exit. We are planning to add private browsing.

I know that you can. It just has to be done manually. Firefox (desktop) does it automatically. Look in Preferences>Privacy>History>Keep until (for cookies) & Clean history when firefox closes. This is what i want. To clear what i have selected everytime i close the browser.

ps please also fix the startpage thing :)
