Default App to sign me out of sites automatically

In the light of Facebook's great marketing drive, its openframe project, I would like to be sure that I have signed out of each site I go to. Is there anything that does this?

Which web browser do you use?

In Firefox, go to Tools > Options... > Privacy > "Clear History when Firefox closes" > make sure "active logins" is checked.

This would apply to every site, though. Including ours. So it's a bit heavy handed. Perhaps you can just check the settings of individual sites you don't trust and make sure they are not set to automatically sign-in.

In Firefox I had it set to clear most everything including cookies. I just used SecureLogin AddOn to log in with a couple of clicks. Now that I'm using SRWare Iron I see the ease of the automatic login. But I have CCleaner set to clear cache, and a separate .cmd file to delete the cookie file.

I hate it when they hide the logout button/link on sites though. Sometimes I have to do text search to find the thing.

Default App to sign me out of sites - Chrome

I'm using Chrome. I want to be signed out of every site when my screensaver comes on in case I forget and other people use my machine. Does anyone know of one?

Well, you can make a different account for guests and other members of your family. There's a screensaver setting called: "On resume, display logon screen"
Therefore, whenever someone interrupts your screensaver, you will be signed out (locked) automatically. They can still access the other accounts by clicking "switch user".

This will only be affective if you have a password.
