When it comes to your privacy you have to know that Google, its toolbar and your browser are the worst enemy ever!

If you have got Firefox web browser and you use it on a daily basis, you should know its famous Google Search suggestion field, located on its right side. This little tool lets you search Google without going to Google main page. It also suggests what you are looking for by showing your previous searches and the keywords which match what you are typing.  Unfortunately, this feature saves your searches so that anybody else using it will be able to see what and where you have surfed to. To turn  off such a feature, read this article of mine on how to turn off Google Search suggestion from Firefox.
