Is there a Chrome(ium) alternative for the Firefox "Self-Destructing Cookies" extension?
Tab Cookies looks like it would fit the bill.
From the description:
This extensions deletes all the cookies created in a tab (which are not used by other tabs) when you close the tab. In this way your privacy is guaranteed.
For example, as long as you stay on gMail, you are logged in, but once you close that tab (and all the others which are or have been on a Google site) the tracking cookies of Google disappear. Same for Facebook, once you close all the tabs which opened Facebook, its cookies disappear, so other sites cannot track you around the web.
The closest I can think of is the native behavior in Chrome, which can delete cookies as soon as you close the browser.
chrome://settings(or open the Settings from the menu).
Open the advanced settings, by clicking Show advanced settings...
Open the content settings, by clicking Content settings...
Select the option Keep local data only until I quit my browser
There aren't many that are very close, but I decided that this one is closer than the rest. It's called Vanilla Cookie Manager, and it uses a whitelist function for cookie-blocking. It also has a feature that lets you destroy all (non-whitelist) cookies on startup. That's what I use.
Oh, and on any page, if you hit the button, you can check your cookie jar to see how many you have and how many are actually from the sites you whitelisted. You can find buttons to destroy the non-whitelist cookies then and there, or to add the page to whitelist, or go to the control panel.
