    if you are using firefox then..... if you put your cursor over the entry you want to erase, then push shift and backspace, this should eraser the chosen search.

    To prevent people from seeing your Google searches for the next 2,000 years, use Scroogle.

    This says:
    Go to Safari menu and select preferences.
    From the menus select Autofill
    Go to Other Forms line and select Edit button
    From list of sites for which Autofill is currently being applied, select Google.com and select Remove.

    SIMPLE: From the Safari menu, select Reset Safari. This will clear all searches, URLs, Histories and auto-fill forms.

    This will NOT erase your Bookmarks. It's just to clear out the junk.

    I dunno which is right or whether both are.

    Hi,

    changed the preferences but it only allows you to switch off the autofill for google, it doesn't delete the previous entries. Does anyone know how to do this ?
