    I would much prefer if the browser was empty and did not load up the previous session/website/tabs when I open it, it annoys me when I go to show someone something or they want me to look something up and my previous browsing appears. Haven't had a bad run in yet but it will probably happen eventually and I would not be pleased.
    Does anyone know of a way to have it open clean?

    Just kill all windows once you're done.

    Using about:blank for your home page works in most browsers if you don't want anything at all to open, assuming you've already closed the browser.

    Also, some browsers will allow you to create home screen shortcuts to about:blank, then launchers like Nova will let you rename the shortcut and change its icon. So you could replace your normal browser icon with a shortcut to about:blank. If you still had pages open in your default browser, at least it would open to a blank page.

    A few things you can do. Go to "settings" and ...
    1) under "set home page" click on "use new tab"
    2) under "exit settings" click on "clear cache", "clear history" and "clear cookies"
    3) under "privacy and personal data" you can also click on "private mode"

    Myself, I use all three of the above - never had issues

    Oh ya, and make sure it is actually closed when you are done, otherwise the above are useless.....
