I'm sick of these targeted ads.  I want to set my browser to delete everything -- temp files, cookies, all that -- every time I close it.  That's doable. 

I don't really want to bother with making exceptions.  I just want everything cleared out.

But then I have to put passwords back in.  Is there a program that would do that for me?  I click on the site and could just click a button and it logs me in?

No amount of how-to information is going to work if you have the wrong mindset, the wrong guiding philosophies. Avoid losers like the plague, and gather with and learn from winners only.

That's what I was thinking of.  Anyone using those?

From a Abstract Data Type view,resource comparison doing multiple tests and a Big O algorithm analysis we have found that the Lastpass one requires fewer manual input but that the Keepass is 6.5% faster.

Here is a further simplified formula:

(O(f(n)))
Hex 01f4a5 data input variables vs Hex 12d46a O(1) -O(1)
Patterns and presets iterations per second 40/s vs 38/s O(40*X)-O(38*Y)
Bulk of output 55Kb vs 70Kb taking stardard R.I.M O(55*N) - O(70*M)

Finally we have O(N*X) vs O(M*Y)

As you can see the results are pretty similar in the real of algorithmic analysis so in the end the choice is yours as both run at similar speed.

Regarding the targeted ads:  These are two browser plugins that I use:  Adblock Plus, and Disconnect.  Adblock Plus is effective on almost all online advertisement.  You can create custom filters for those stubborn ads that make it through.  Disconnect is for tracking.  An added bonus is social media integration is effectively removed from sites (if you switch on the appropriate settings), so no more annoying Facebook like buttons, or Twitter, or google+ crowding page content. 

You can use CCleaner to clear out your browser cookies.  It does support exclusion lists for cookies.  So you could add all the sites you wish to keep your settings.  A nice cleanout of all those ad related cookies is good once in a while.

I figured I'd just clear everything out -- temp files, cookies, everything.  The only catch is I have to put my password back in after that.  Unless I figure out which cookie goes with which site, but that's work, and there are these programs out there to assist.

The Lastpass one was appealing to my laziness.  Just add passwords to Lastpass on the fly while visiting a site?  That sounds easy.  Although not critical at all....

Will these let me just click a button on a browser and it puts the password in for me?  I can handle an extra mouse click.  I'd like to have everything cleared out automatically.  (I've got that down already.)  And then go to a website, click once to have the password in, but not have it automatically log me in.  If I click on Amazon, I might not want to bother with logging in and don't want it tracking me.

I use Dashlane. Creates passwords for you, then gets you into your webpages. You first need to get into your webpage with your old password, then change your password. Dashlane creates one for you. It's free and for a limited time syncs to all your devices. After that  it's $20 some to continue  syncing for a year. If you don't need to sync, it's completely free.

The main security feature for LastPass and similar services is that one can have unique, long and complex passwords for every account they use the service for.  If someone does hack into one of your accounts, the other ones are not jeopardized.  With the amount of seemingly non-sensitive info people share about themselves on social media, it can be fairly easy to build an online profile of a person for the purposes of identity theft. 

When you are inputting sites into an exclusion list, you only do it once.  So in the long run, it is less work.
