iGoogle (Web) Part II

Recently, I wrote about how Google can change your life.  I discovered a new 'toy' within Google.  Google offers a free service when you sign up for a Google account.  The service is called web history.  When web history is enabled, you can:
1. View and search across webpages you've visited in the past, including Google searches.
2.  Find trends on your web activity, such as your most visited sites and top searches
3.  Get more personalized search results based on what you've searched for and the sites you've visited.
4.  Not have to hunt or try to remember what it was you looked up the other day or last week and forgot to bookmark!

The web history is stored on Google's servers instead of on your own computer.  This way, no matter where you are in the world, you can login to your Google account and see your web history.  You must be signed in to Google in order for your web history to be tracking.

If you have a Google account and are interested in Web History, visit
You can also pause the web history at anytime while you are logged into your Google Account.
