    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. :mad:

    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'm surprised.. mine goes back to September 2008. Huh, I thought I cleaned up more often than that...

    I so don't need my web history saved for more than... erm... today. :eek: (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 :D) In IE: I can't even find the History button :D. But yeah, the Safari's only 1 because I had to re-install it that day.

    i have trust issues about my computer and its' information. i have Firefox setup to NEVER save any of my history, and i always lock (not physically, i log off) my computer when i'm not using it or when i walk away.

    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.
