Gnome also has a registry. Hey, you don’t believe me? Try gconf-editor.
Shhh! Don’t let any dev know I say it is a registry, they hate that name.

I know that there are browsers in linux that do store the information
centrally (under home, of course). It is perfectly doable. I’m unsure if I
have seen somewhere if it was configurable (centrally of with hidden files)

And the browsers that store that info locally, in hidden files, should have
the option not to create it, and remember it, globally, or better, on some
directories - specially on plugable media, or when for some reason the user
doesn’t want them, like now.

I know, I know, you can use CLI. I do. But people like GUIs, so they should
have that feature, too.
