This is a two part question:
I have Brave set to clear cookies, cached images/files, auto-fill form data, and hosted app data on exit. Is this just as effective (in terms of privacy on the web) as using incognito tabs? Of course locally, I leave my history alone and clear that manually instead whenever I see fit, but it’s my understanding that your browsing history is 100% local and can’t be accessed by sites. Is my understanding correct?
Other than clearing on exit, would clearing everything manually (advanced, all time, same settings as clear on exit) be just as good as restarting my browser that clears everything on exit?
