    What browser are you currently using? In Safari, go to:

    History> Clear History. It should clear all of your history, but not your passwords, cookies and such.
    Si, hablo Espa˝ol. Oui, je parle franšais. Yes, I speak English.

    On Firefox .... Tools --> Clear Private Data and select what you would like to clear. ( Browsing History,.... )
