We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time: premature optimization is the root of all evil.
I am doing a startup!
Cross-browser testing from your browser!
I have written my fourth book!
Be faster than Larry Wall at command line!

Kevin, you completely misunderstood what this code is for. It's for the public (free) browserling instances. It does exactly what it's supposed to - it clears the cache, cookies, and history after you, so that the next user did not know who you were. You don't really want YOUR cache be seen by the next user!
For the private, paid accounts, of course, we will not be wiping cache, cookies or history. You'll have your own private account and you will be the only one who accesses it.
My bad, this is a formal apology. I even read the code 2x but inexplicably did not check the context. Apologies, and seriously hoping the startup goes well. High hopes and all that, and of course you are right about the clean wiping of a remote instance.
It's just that many web apps ask you to wipe your cache for many reasons... but this does not excuse my lack of due diligence whatsoever.
Apology accepted. :)
DUDE, thanks for the coding
Amateur-level scripting. Instead of typing out "C:\users\%username%\" Just use "%userprofile%\". Also, this can be accomplished much easier:
Specifically for clearing your history, temp cache, and cookies.
This is a fun one! uses your boxes you have checked in internet explorer for deleting you crap. its .vbs format. Only tested on Win7.
set wshshell = createobject("wscript.shell")
.sendkeys "inetcpl.cpl ~"
.sendkeys "exit ~"
.appactivate "Internet Properties"
