browsingData

WebExtensions 을 통해 사용자가 브라우저를 사용하는 동안 축적된 데이터를 삭제할 수 있는 기능을 제공합니다.

browsingData API는 브라우징 데이터를 다음과 같은 타입으로 구분합니다:

  • 브라우저 캐시
  • 쿠키
  • 다운로드
  • 히스토리
  • 플러그인 데이터
  • 저장된 폼 데이터
  • 저장된 비밀번호saved passwords

You can use the browsingData.remove() (en-US) function to remove any combination of these types. There are also dedicated functions to remove each particular type of data, such as removePasswords() (en-US), removeHistory() (en-US) and so on.

All the browsingData.remove[X]() functions take a browsingData.RemovalOptions (en-US) object, which you can use to control two further aspects of data removal:

  • how far back in time to remove data
  • whether to remove data only from normal web pages, or also from hosted web apps and add-ons. Note that this option is not yet supported in Firefox.

Finally, this API gives you a browsingData.settings() (en-US) function that gives you the current value of the settings for the browser's built-in "Clear History" feature.

To use this API you must have the "browsingData" API permission.
