Hi @larry2
Do you mean like to suit your daily usage, just like Firefox?
Probably the best chance is to view Google's Feature website
https://www.google.com/chrome/webstore/features.html

This page shows you:
* Chrome Web Store (Chrome apps, extensions (plugins), and themes)
* And, tells you that you can access Chrome between devices (all installed apps, extensions & plugins will be synced automatically, if you are signed in into the Chrome)

To add, you can set to make it clear the cookies everytime you exit Chrome.
* Go to hamburger menu in the top left corner > Settings
* Scroll down to the bottom of the page, click "Show advanced menu"
* Go to "Privacy" section, click "Content Settings.."
* In "Cookies" section, pick "Keep local data only until you quit the browser" > Done

Regards,
F Mu

Choosing your startup options

To choose a homepage

By default, Chrome will show the New Tab page whenever you start the browser. If you'd like to see a specific website every time you open your browser, like a news site or weather forecast, you can set that site as your homepage.

1.Click the Chrome menu in the top-right corner of the browser, then select Settings.

2.The Settings tab will appear. Locate and click the check box next to Show Home button.

3.By default, Chrome will open the new tab page whenever you click the home button. To choose a new homepage, click Change.

4.A dialog box will appear. Select Open this page: and then type a web address. In our example, we'll type www.google.com

5.Click OK to continue.

6.The homepage will appear whenever you start Chrome. Click the Home button Home button icon in the navigation bar to visit your homepage at any time.

If there are certain sites you open every time you start your browser, like your email or calendar, you can pin each page as a tab. Pinned tabs will open automatically whenever you open Chrome. Review our lesson on Browsing in Chrome to learn more about pinning tabs.

To set Chrome as the default browser:

If you would like to use Chrome as your only web browser, you can set it as the default browser on your computer. If you click a link in another program on your computer, like an email client, it will open in Chrome.

1.Click the Chrome menu in the top-right corner of the browser, then select Settings.
2.The Settings tab will appear. Locate and select Make Google Chrome my default browser. Any link you open on your computer will now open in Google Chrome.
The Chrome Web Store

The Chrome Web Store allows you to download different web apps, extensions, and themes, which can make Chrome even more powerful and personal.

Apps

Web apps work just like software you might install on your computer, but they run through your browser instead of your operating system. Web apps range from simple tools, like a calculator or notepad, to complex applications, like a photo editor or even a game!

To install an app:

Navigate to https://chrome.google.com/webstore or click Chrome Web Store on the New Tab page.

The Chrome Web Store will appear. Click an app to learn more about it.

The app page will appear with information about how the app works, user reviews, screenshots, and more. If you want to use the app, click Add to Chrome.

A dialog box will appear. Click Add to install the app.

The New Tab Page will appear with the installed app. Click the icon to start the app.

The app will open in a new tab.

To rearrange or delete an app:

You can view, open, organize, and delete your apps from the New Tab page.

To rearrange your apps, click and drag an icon, then release the mouse when you're ready to place the app. This might be helpful if the New Tab page is beginning to feel cluttered.

If you want to delete an app, right-click the icon, then select Remove from Chrome from the drop-down menu. You can also delete an app by clicking and dragging the icon to the trash can in the lower-right corner.
