To say people shouldn't clear their browser (which is common, for privacy, etc) to be able to use a piece of software properly is just not logical, and Construct already has frequent consent prompts in Chrome anyway, to be able to edit and save project files. I get them all the time, even during long stretches when I never clear the browser. I don't mind, consent prompts are normal. A consent requirement to store plugins and settings locally would be trivial.
Nothing personal, I absolutely love Construct, and you Ashley are a hero to all of us creative types for making it. Seriously. I'm not much of a programmer, but I have 20 years of consulting on UI/UX, and this just is not a good design.
If you could offer insight into where the plugins and settings are stored (which of the four areas shown in the above screegrab from Chrome's settings), I might be able to address my issue. Thanks
