    am I missing something Millard? That link just takes me to my gmail login screen.

    It's not the gmail login screen (although login credentials are the same). It's the Google account history screen.
  4. Thanks for sharing Millard! It gives a vulnerable uneasy feeling viewing all searches in a single place. Makes me think twice before googling that's for sure. I guess I'll add this site maintenance to my "To Do" list.

    There a add on I wanna say ghostery? It will change what you type in history and searches to things like shopping. When you are really looking up other things.

    I really think it is a fantasy to believe encrypted mail and such will keep the government/LE from knowing your doings. I don't buy it. If they want to know, they will.

    Firefox has some really good add-ons. I like no-script, exploding cookies and add-block plus. Too bad I'm using I.E. right now. I find myself browser hopping at random. I.E, crome and firefox I have a habit of using different browsers for different things. I like opera on cell. I don't know why I do that it makes my bookmarks a clusterf*ck to find. Firefox is for all those dirty porn sites that try and jack your sh*t up.

    But google can only see what your searching when you are logged in to your google account right? Right? Officially?

    As I understand it, logging in is an "opt-in" agreement to their privacy policy which basically means you agree to allow them to store information on you - including your IP address. But I think even *after* logging out, searches with the same IP address or cookies can still be cleared, but I don't think it's officially logged.

    I asked a friend who works at google overseas, "no clue" :D

    Doesn't searching while "incognito" or "private" mode not store your history?
