Clearing Cache & Cookies

16 replies
If I clear out my Cache and cookies in Chrome, does that clear them out in Firefox as well?

Maybe I Am asking, are cookies part of a browser or part of the computer?

Using Win7

Thanks. Ducky

    they are browser specific.

    clearing chrome wont affect FF or IE.

    in short, they all work independently from each other.

    No, When you clear your cache from Chrome, the cookies in the other browser
    does not get affected. . . not unless you use a cleaner which will clear up all the browser in your computer. Hope everything is clear. :-)

    CCleaner, as already mentioned.

    The reason is there are other cookies like flash-cookies which a browser doesn't clean. I am using CCleaner for ages already.

    Not sure why you want to clear out all your cookies. I like having passwords and log-ins come up automatically. Unless I was using a computer others also used. CCleaner is pretty good in that case.

    Another nice thing I discovered recently about CCleaner is that it will list the applications that startup on your computer with each bootup (Tools, Startup). You can then delete the annoying ones that show up un-invited every now and then.

    I use CC cleaner and like it but I also clear my cookies on Firefox with the better privacy add on as it helps to get rid of those pesky flash cookies.

      I use better privacy to dump off LSO cookies - which allow sites to gather info on you no matter what you are doing online. Not sure if that's the same as a flash cookie but definitely vile crap to have sites dumping into your computer.

      I'll 3rd the advice for crap cleaner. It's an awesome tool. And ya can't beat the price. (free)

    Yeah, CCleaner would be the best at clearing all the cookies on all your browser at one time. If you're worried about the passwords and logins, you may opt to use roboform then.

    My advise: It is always a wise habit to clear your cache and cookies after using your browser.
