How far back in time does your web browser's history go?

I was looking at my history in Safari and saw that my history had gone all the way back to May 26, of this year. It could've been a lot more if Apple hadn't decided to put the "Show All History" and "Clear History" right next to each other.

But all in all I have viewed 22,312 pages for those 201 days. That's an average of 111 pages per day.

What does your history look like?

I so don't need my web history saved for more than... erm... today. (And so I typically set the history duration for one day, or on some computers, zero days).

11/11/08..the day I started using FireFox. In Safari: 1 item (Thats the homepage from me just opening it ) In IE: I can't even find the History button . But yeah, the Safari's only 1 because I had to re-install it that day.

I have set at 7 days, methinks. I gots nothin' to hide and never go back into my history anyway, so I don't care... I've had it set shorter on occasion just to save space. Silly.
