How to automatically empty cache on exit - Opera 30

  • Opera browser version 30.1835.59
    On previous versions there was a settings option "Empty cache on exit", but has this option seems to have disappeared in this version. How can I activate it ?

  • You need an extension for that. I'm not aware that earlier versions of the current Opera (based on a Chromium engine) had that feature. Maybe you're thinking of Opera Presto?

    Anyway, the Chrome extension Click & Clean (which you can use in Opera now) has a setting that will clear cache when you exit the browser.

    Now it has a lot of other features that you might like, or might not. You might look for something that just clears cache if you don't have use for the other features in Click & Clean.

  • As I understand this extension requires that I have to click another button before I close the browser ?
    I would like to make the Opera browser to automatically do this every time I close it.

  • I also want this feature. I don't want to keep my history for privacy reasons. Can this feature be done within Opera without relying on an extension. I try to minimize extensions to not affect the browser performance. Firefox has an option to not keep history or limit to a number of days.

  • Why don't use a private window?
