How to clear Browsing History of past few hours in Firefox, Chrome, and Edge

While In-Private browsing is still better to stay from getting tracked to all those sites which you don’t want people to see but then you don’t want to switch every time. So here is how to clean up browsing history:

Firefox

  • Click on the Hamburger menu on the top right
  • Click on Options and switch to Privacy and Security
  • Find Clear Browsing data section, and then press the Clear History button.
  • In the dropdown for Time Range to clear, you can choose
    • Last hour
    • Last one hour or two hours or four
    • Today and Everything

It makes sense to me. I can browse wherever I want and let people not know about it. Just clean my last 2 hours of history.

Chrome and Edge Chromium

  • Press ALT + F and then click on Settings
  • Go to Privacy and Services > Clear Browsing Data
  • Click on Choose what to clear. It will open a pop-up window
  • Under Time Range you can choose from
    • Last Hour
    • Last 24 hours
    • Last seven days
    • Last four weeks
    • All Time

Firefox offers a better option compared to Edge with a choice of two and four hours, which gives you enough time range.

On similar lines, it is also possible to delete cookies from the browsers quickly; You can choose to remove them individually. Earlier, one had to clear, which meant losing sessions.
