Privacy Manager is feature rich extension which lets you access all the Chromes privacy settings in a single dropdown window and also the settings that are unavailable in chromes default settings window. You can access these unavailable settings (normally called Experimental settings) by typing “chrome://flags” in the address bar. But, don’t try to change these settings if you don’t know exactly what it is.
The most useful feature I liked in this extension is, it lets you quickly open any tab in incognito mode (private browsing mode). Yes, its helpful because we can browse sensitive subjects without being tracked. 😉
Another great feature in Privacy Manager is the option to clean all browser data when we open the browser next time. This startup browser data clearing is helpful if you are using a public computer.
