I'm looking for a way to delete a whole URL in Google Chrome.

Do I need to run some other program or can it be done in the browser itself?

ONE url out of manys? –  akira Jul 5 '10 at 10:45
@Akira - You can do that in Firefox. Just start typing url and press DEL when you select it. –  Shiki Jul 5 '10 at 10:56
@Shiki: i know that. i asked the OP what (s)he wants. "whole url" is not really specific. one can delete a single entry ("one whole url") from the history in chrome, as well as the whole history .. and all that without any 3rd party stuff. –  akira Jul 5 '10 at 11:08
@akira - okay okay sorry. –  Shiki Jul 5 '10 at 11:23

I found the answer from here

  • type part the the URL, so it shows up in your suggestion
  • use the arrow keys to move to it
  • Press Shift and Delete (if on Mac, press fn + Shift + delete) to remove the link.

  1. Click the "Tools" menu.
  2. Select Options.
  3. Click the Under the Hood tab.
  4. Click Clear browsing data.
  5. Select the "Clear browsing history" checkbox.
  6. Use the "Clear data from this period" menu to select the amount of data you want to delete. 7. Select Everything to clear your entire browsing history completely.
  7. Click Clear browsing data

Another alternative is CCleaner

Not sure why you are recommending a separate tool rather than use the browsers built in method... –  soandos Dec 21 '11 at 23:35

If you want to remove something specifically from your history, open Chrome and go to chrome://history/#e=1&p=0.

You may have to copy and paste that link, it doesn't seem to like to link directly to it.

Browser itself: you can inject JavaScript code like this.

Step 1 Since Chrome history is queried inside a iFrame, we have to visit: chrome://history-frame/ (copy and paste URL)

Step 2 Do the search query.

Step 3 Open the Chrome console(F12 or CtrlShifti or i) and execute:

var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName('input');
for (var i = 0; i < inputs.length; ++i) {
  if (inputs[i].type == "checkbox"){
    inputs[i].checked = true;
document.getElementById("remove-selected").disabled = false

Step 4 Hit the 'Remove selected items' button.

Actually this deletes the elements in the current page, so it's an incomplete solution.
