Pause and resume history with a click
This extension works as a simple on/off switch. Click to pause history logging. Click again to resume.
When browsing history is disabled, a red “X” will be added to the toolbar button. This way you’ll always know if history is currently enabled or disabled.
This extension will only disable history recording, but it doesn’t deal with cookies, local storage, browser cache etc. In other words — all web sites will work as always, except that your visits will not be recorded in the history.
When history recording is paused the back/forward buttons of the browser will not work.
(To do their job these buttons need… the history and we are disabling exactly the history)
