    clearing browser data

    is there a way to clear all data, cache... upon opening a browser. i have ccleaner which removes all data so i need to find a way of excecuting a clean when i press my browser button. can someone explain how do do this.
    why i want to do this as i watch alot of catch up and live tv & in my experience it works smoothly if you clear data, cache... before you start the streaming.
    i have 2 browsers on my pc. chrome which i only use for non streaming purposes and opera which i use only for video streaming.

    In Opera you can set it to clear cookies, cache, history etc. on close. As long as the first thing you do is stream it amounts to the same thing.
