Google Web History

Google Web History

reports that Google has once again launched a new “feature.”

Google released a new feature called Google Web History. Once you’ve enabled it, Google will start recording your entire browsing history. It does this by grabbing information from the Google toolbar that is sent for every page you access when you have Pagerank enabled.[…]


While there may be a legitimate, and useful purpose, for a service like this I believe privacy concerns may trump all. In an era where the DHS can sapena records from search engine providers about what someone is looking at, why would a user want to take that a step further and hand them the whole shebang? Don’t give me that “if you’re not doing anything wrong…” angle excuse either. The whole thing is just too uncomfortable for me. Little big brother ish.
