Chrome history/cookie cleaners that do not invade your privacy


Have Google Chrome in one office. I want to install a)flashblocker b)adblocker c)history and cookies cleaner. Except when I read the privacy policies of the most popular programs, the extensions themselves are pretty invasive. And Google already collects enough info and now the extensions are doing the same thing.

What do you use?

Should I go back to Firefox 24 which has these extensions and are not as intrusive?

Chrome is faster but is privacy something I should be concerned with...lol...privacy with google. Like sleeping next to a hungry lion...

All browsers now report all the web pages you visit so they can check them for 'security' problems.  And they keep track of those results.  Any anti-virus you use with a 'web reputation' plugin does the same thing.  Firefox has used Google's malware service for many years now.  If it is privacy you are looking for, turn off the computer and walk away.
Personally, I use ScriptSafe, Adblock Plus and CCleaner (stand alone, not an extension) for the three things you are looking for.
