    How can I see what other users of my computer have been viewing after the history has been emptied?

    Ha, no that's not it. A relative has been using the computer to purchase something and I'm trying to find out what it is.

    You can go to the Safari menu and select "reset safari"

    it'll clear out all that pr0n. :p

    Or, while browsing what you don't want people to see in your history, you can turn on "private browsing"

    edit: oh.. whoops. posted answer that doesn't make sense at same time as OP.

    Just wait until the package comes and ask them. :)

    That's not what I'm asking. I'm asking, how I can go back and see the history after somebody has already clicked "clear history."

    If they took the time to clear the history, it's probably pr0n they ordered. :D

    It would be a terrible implementation of clear history if it didn't actually clear the history. I hope and think you can't.

    Check the cookie file to see if anything stands out.

    "Clear History" only clears the history file, right? If they didn't also empty the cache, there may still be some info there. Check ~/Library/Caches/Safari (assuming you're using Safari). You'll have to dig through the subfolders to see if you can find anything.
