How to Delete the Browsing History in Google


If you regularly conduct Internet searches with the search engine Google, you may want to delete your search history and browsing history from time to time to protect your privacy from others. This simple process takes only minutes to complete. When you are finished, your searches will be gone from the Google toolbar (if you use this feature) and the Google search box, and you can start fresh with a cleared Google history.
