    This opens up another page and we have a selection of things we can delete
    .
    Passwords, Form data, Download History, Cookies and website data, Temporary Internet files and web site files. It is a good idea to delete your history regularly. This could help to delete tracking cookies which record the websites you visit. For example, if you search for a tent that you would like to buy, then subsequently every website you visit after that suspiciously has ads about tents. Deleting your cookies and other information will help to clear your browser and give it a fresh start.
