Delete cookies when browser is closed or once the tab is closed to prevent tracking
This extension aims to bring "Self-Destructing Cookies" extension written by "Ove" to Chromium browsers. The extension supports two modes to deal with cookies:
1. "session" mode: delete cookies once the current session is closed (all browser windows are closed).
2. "tabs" mode: delete cookies related to the current tab once the tab is closed and there are no other tabs of the same domain.
Example: Let's say you are logged-in into your email account:
In "session" mode, you will be logged-in until all browser tabs are closed.
In "tabs" mode, you will be logged-out once all email tabs are closed. So if you have two email tabs opened and still one tab is open, you are still logged-in. Once the other tab is closed, you will get logged-out
Note: the extension does not support cleaning "window.localStorage" at this moment. I will work on that later!

I do not think..this extension works...
This extension causes the entire Chrome browser to constantly get logged out of my Google account, because anytime I close a tab from any Google-related domain or subdomain that I have not yet added specifically to the whitelist, it wipes out my Google login altogether.
This is the only really thing that works for me. I use it on all browsers.
Currently does not handle sub-domains very well, in tab mode. Closing a tab with www.domain[.]com also destroys the cookies for other.domain[.]com, even though other tabs for the domain are open.
Finally, a simple extension that does what I want it to - clear cookies on closing browser, with a whitelist that's easy to add to. I wish there was an option to have left clicking the icon add/remove from whitelist instead of turning the whole extension on/off, but otherwise it does its job perfectly.
