the thing is that Chrome doesn't provide an option to remove browsing history after closing the browser, only firefox does as far as i know. So I'm looking for an extension that does that for me, without deleting cookies too. :(
Edge Chromium has that option:

Might be worth a look? 🤷‍♂️

Are you using PB with built-in and µBO/Adbguard?

For me, the foundation for both Edge and Vivaldi. (y) Clear URL extension also--many thanks, oldschool, a good addition. AdGuard DNS also.

Plus some native tweaks in Edge since Viv. is also Sandboxie'd and set to auto-delete after closing. I don't consider Sandboxie for privacy purposes, more for general security. And....that's it.

Chrome (on Windows):
  • chrome://flags modifications
  • uBlock Origin
  • HTTPS Everywhere
  • CookieAutoDelete
Edge (Chromium; on Windows):
  • uBlock Origin
Brave (on Linux)
  • Built in settings/integrated extensions
Firefox (on Android):
  • about:config modifications
  • uBlock Origin
  • HTTPS Everywhere
  • CookieAutoDelete
Side note:
A setup that I used to run was Firefox (desktop) and making use of Firefox's Multi-Account Containers and pairing it with Temporary Containers. It is a pain to setup, but once you get it configured to how you want it, it's worth it.

Also, a majority of the about:config Firefox tweaks I implemented can be found here (in the section labeled Firefox: Privacy Related "about:config" Tweaks): Web Browsers | PrivacyTools
