I might be sharing my macbook with a few people for a few days when I get it. How can I erase all tracks of my internet browsing activity, like history, cookies, cache, etc?
Thx

if your using safari go to safari -> reset safari. clears cache, history, download window, and cookies but leaves everything else such as bookmarks in tact..

Create a new account for them to use, that way they won't see any of your stuff, set the access for that account low so they can't mess up anything.

When you are in safari, go to safari > private browsing. Private browsing doesnt store or give off any cookies and it doesnt keep a history trail.

I second that.
If multiple users are going to have access to the same machine, then make multiple user accounts. That is one of the main reasons that feature exists.
