    Password managers are good, and if you can get people to use them, great. But a lot of people just will not - it's too much trouble for them. Particularly if you are teaching people that may be using...

    The "Keep local data only until I quit my browser" option only clears cookies, not the cache, so I wouldn't expect it to do what you want. I'm surprised the others didn't work, though.

    It sounds...
