How to Erase Google Chrome Internet History

Cut and Dry version at bottom of post..

Clearing internet history can improve productivity by getting rid of old site visits that you distract you away from what you are concerned with currently in addition to protecting your information from other people who use your computer. For example, coworkers who use your computer may see where you have been or be able to access accounts in which you "selected" remember my password.

Also, keep in mind that each internet browser has its own history, which means if you use two internet browsers you would have to clear the two separate from one another.
