Question How to make Google Chrome to delete history after x days?

After 3 days, for example. Is there option or add-on for this?

Lightbulb Incognito/History

I use Incognito for this when using google chrome. Append the -incognito flag to the command in the Icon that you use to activate Chrome. The command looks like this:

/usr/bin/google-chrome -incognito

Of course, you can also click on the wrench in the upper right corner and then mess with the history settings there. However, Incognito is far more secure because it is basically a stealth browser. It knocks out cookies and the cache when you close it, not just the history.

Try Incognito. You might like it a lot.
