    I've noticed by chance that Shadow Defender doesn't seem to delete Chrome's browsing history with a new session. How is this possible, it doesn't happen with other browsers, and it could be a vulnerability. Can anybody confirm or explain why this is happening?
    PLEASE DISREGARD THIS POST, I MADE A MISTAKE AND GOT THE WRONG CONCLUSIONS

    No need to delete, just shows Shadow Defender didn't let you down. ;)

    To tell you the truth this is probably the only downside of light virtualization: you've got to keep track of what you are committing (or retaining), and sometimes I just forget, or get distracted, and I end up losing research work. It doesn't happen very often but I had such situations in the past.

    Today I was under the impression that Chrome history hadn't been deleted by the shadow session; as a matter of fact I had been rebooting in shadow mode for quite a while and didn't realize that that Chrome's history was retained from the first time I entered shadow mode: I just didn't check the dates!
