Hiding your christmas search on a mac....How?
« on: 04/11/2008 21:27:52 »
My friend has a Mac and wants to shop on-line for Christmas presents. The trouble is his wife uses the same computer and his searches come up at the top of the page when she starts typing in website names. This may give away the surprises he has planned. Does anyone know how to turn this feature off or wipe its memory (remember this is a Mac). It could also be used for hiding the fact that you've been on porn sites but he assures me that this is not the reason!!!!!
Give a man a fire and he is warm for a day, set a man on fire and he is warm for the rest of his life.
