Tip of the Moment
I learned something new the other know how IE has that feature where it remembers what you've previously typed in a textbox, and it gives you a dropdown list? Some people (like me) like it, other find it kind of an annoying security risk...but anyway, if there's an entry you want to remove from that list, you can cursorkey down to it and hit "delete" and it goes away. For me it's most useful to remove past typos from "username" textboxes, but I guess if you had a particularly personal Google search you wanted to eliminate, it would work for that too. (Note, I have no idea if it's "really erased" or not, so don't assume this a secure thing...)
