Riiiiiiight. "Your brother"

They could find something if they were smart enough to check the cache, so I'd clear that (how to clear that is under the Safari menu). Beyond that, try to keep your brother off your computer.

Just clear the history....then type "http://mystupidbrotherusedmycomputertosearchforporn" into the address bar. Of course, you'll get the message that this address can't be located...but it will be in your history, so it's a good way (if your parents see it in there) to rat out your brother without actually telling on him.

You should probably also check your downloads folder in case the dork downloaded anything.

Make sure he didn't save any to the hard drive.

When I first read the post, I had this thought that it was the little brother talked about in that thread a while ago "caught my 13 year old brother look at porn".

In Safari (assuming he was using Safari) go to Preferences>General and look under "Save downloaded files to:" to see where Safari saves stuff...I think the default might be the Desktop, in which case you just have to trash those files...if it's another folder, find that folder (probably inside your home folder) and look for stuff there.
