    Does resetting Safari delete all trace evidence of internet history, use, and downloads?
    If not, how do I do it?
    A friend who's nosy and also fairly knowledgeable (well much more than me anyway) is going to using my computer for a while, and I'd rather not have her know what's I've been looking.

    You should not share your account with your friend. Give him his own account. Delete it when he is done.

    Yeah I will create a new account now that you mention it thanks.
    I also want to know because, well to tell the truth, I don't want lingering remnants of the porn faze I went through hiding somewhere obscure on the computer.
    So resetting leaves no trace remaining, just to be sure?

    Everything that your friend does will be isolated to his home directory. When you delete his account, everything that he will have done will be gone.
