Deleting Google search history

Search engines like Google appear to record the words that you typed in the search box and save them as search history. This is actually not a feature of search engines but of browsers. This feature is called “Autocomplete”. Autocomplete involves the program predicting a word or phrase that the user wants to type in without the user actually typing it in completely. However, just like address history in browsers, users may want to clear the search history for privacy and security reasons. Autocomplete can be turned on or off and search history can be cleared in different ways depending on your browser and your search engine. To know how to delete Google Search History and Form History in Internet Explorer 8, Mozilla Firefox 3.5 and Safari 2 and 3, you can consult our guide at Erase Browser History.
