    Hey everyone! I have a quick question. I've been a Mac user for a little over a year now, and I am pleased as punch with my Apple iBook. That said, every now and then I still come up against a question that I'm not quite prepared to answer on my own. Here's the thing: I use Safari, and I use Google obsessively. Is there a way to clear the history of Google searches? When I type in a letter, I'd love to not have every search from the last year pop up.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hmm... Try this: go to the Safari Preferences, then select the Autofill section. Under "Other forms", which is probably ticked, select Edit and then clear what you don't want. Alternatively, turn off autofill completely for other forms by unchecking it.

    I'm not sure if this'll work, but it's worth a try. :)

    Clear Google search

    Mr. Pomme,
    In the very top menu bar of Safari where the Google window is located, there is a tiny magnifing glass icon as well as a downward pointing arrow in the Google window.... Click on the arrow and a menu drops down...at the bottom of that menu is a "clear recent searches" command...click that and start anew.
