Your web browser saves a lot of information about where you go and what you do online while you’re surfing the Web. The sites you visit, copies of the images and text you view, cookies, and information you type into form fields (such as username and password or your mailing address and credit card number) are all saved to your computer’s hard drive and web browser cache for the sake of convenience so that those pages can load faster or your browser can suggest auto-filling the address of a site you visited before.

你的浏览器会记录下所有你浏览过的网页或者搜索过的内容。这样是为了让你再次使用的时候更快捷一些,但也带来了关于隐私的一些不便。

However, if you use a shared or public computer, you may not want the web browser to remember your website logins, history, or even your usernames. Maybe you don’t want your spouse to discover you ordered flowers for her at FTD.com when she types f into the address bar. Maybe you don’t want your roommate to know that you searched for “apartments for rent” on Google last night.

但是,如果你使用的是公共的电脑,那么你可能不希望你的浏览记录被别人看到。

This hack explains how to sweep away your browsing tracks after you finish surfing the Web using history clearing tools and built-in private browsing features.

本章教你怎么清除浏览记录。(想必大家都知道吧。。我就不详细介绍了)

Websites go offline. They move, occasionally suffer from temporary unavailability or errors, or become slow to respond because of technical difficulties or a period of high user demand. Some websites may not be reachable from your particular Internet connection or network. In those cases, when you need the information right away, you need a mirror of that website’s content.

The launch of Google Maps (http://maps.google.com), the search engine’s online geographical mapping application, ushered in a revolution in visualizing location-based data. Not only do Google Maps’ built-in features help you find establishments, addresses, and driving directions, but Google opened its maps interface to third-party developers for their own use. The result is a host of Google Maps mashups, which plot sets of data onto web-based maps.

Google地图的出现给可视化地图数据带来了翻天覆地的变化。Google地图本身提供了许多相关的服务,不仅如此,它还把程序的端口开放出来,让更多的人可以更好的利用Google地图。

The busy person’s perennial question is, “Where did the day go?” It’s easy to get tossed from one thing to the next like a piece of driftwood caught in the tide of your crazy life.
