    I noticed there is an option to clear history and empty cache. Does clear history not clear all traces of Safari browsing? I am a newbie to Safari and find it odd that empty cache is in a completely different menu so I was wondering if they are related or not. Thanks.

    Two different things. History is a list of links you have visited and the cache is stored data from those links to speed access the next time you hit a page.
