Firefox only (Windows/Mac/Linux): Close'n Forget, one of the runners-up for Mozilla's Best Firefox 3 Extensions, has updated to, well, actually work more often, erasing any site's cookie/history/AwesomeBar evidence from Firefox with one button click. We've never featured Close'n Forget as its own download 'round these parts, but, then again, back when it made an appearance in the awards round-up, a handful of commenters were saying it just wouldn't close a tab, or wasn't offering enough customisation. A few bug fixes and updates later, and Close'n Forget seems to really do its intended work. After installing, right-click your toolbar and hit "Customize" to add its tiny X icon to your button array, or right-click any page to get a "Close and erase cookies for current site" option. If you want to go deeper than just that page's cookies, check out Close'n Forgets privacy-plus options:
We know just how embarassing it can be to have your friends or loved ones find out about your secret Scanwiches fetish. Keep Close'n Forget installed, and you won't have to wipe out everything on your browser, just the dirty, mustard-stained traces of a single web indiscretion. Close'n Forget is a free download, works wherever Firefox does.
