    When I search something at google it seems to keep track of what I searched because when I go back and type a letter it shows me a list of things that I previously searched. How do I delete this?

    what OS, what browser, etc. It's not google, it's your computer... but most browsers shouldn't autofill search bars...

    It happens with Safari I know. My wife's iBook does this to me when I use it (I hate it), but I've never had it happen on mine. I must have something turned off on mine or something.

    Yeah, this is in Safari. It remembers items that you enter into a search field (works with google, ebay, pretty much any field), but I think it only sticks around if you don't quit Safari, meaning that if you quit Safari then restart it, it won't have those items memorized. I think.

    well in safari all you have to do is click on the maginfying glass icon in the google bar and scroll down past all your "saved" searches and there is a link to clear it.
