This feature not longer works.
OS: Fedora 36
It doesn’t matter if the feature is enabled or disabled, cookies and data only gets removed when closing the browser instead of all windows related to a URL.
it always been like that
that why if you go to
brave://settings/clearBrowserData it said on exit and for the other option it mean the same
check this from chrome which apply to brave also
check this section under
Delete cookies after you close Chrome
It wasn’t always like that. On exit is working correctly while the other option isn’t, the wording can be confusing but “all windows” was working in the older builds differently.
There would be not point in having two options doing the same thing.
The all windows option was refering to URL’s in tabs, so if I was reading the nytimes in two tabs and the wsj in another tab, if I closed one of the two tabs of the nytimes, the cookies related to the nytimes weren’t deleted, but the moment I close the remaining nytimes tab they were deleted while maintaining the cookies related to the wsj.
The option I’m refering to is in brave://settings/cookies .
