I don’t think any explanation is necessary. :o
I do. What do you mean by “application histories”? As in the history of applications’ formation?
Yes, that’s exactly what I meant.
I voted Useful… there is one But (or is that butt? ) : There need to be good and working options to set to clear out history as pleases.
Is is just me or is there an implication in the wording of this poll that if you don’t find histories useful, you’re probably trying to cover your tracks because you were doing something you know you shouldn’t have been doing??
Histories are useful… unless you trying to do something bad/evil.
There is also some mid ground here, like avoiding clutter.

True… and the whole privacy (not because I’m doing something
bad) issue. I was just saying it “felt” like the issue
centered more around the “bad” or “evil”… I could be wrong.
I find them useful.
If I found some information on a website and didn’t save the bookmark, I could just go and find it from the history tab.
Hmmm… well, I still live at home, so sometimes it can be a little embarassing if your brother or sister or parent is standing next to you, and one of your stored history items or search results shows up…
and then they see I visited sites with LINUX info and videos!
See what I mean… not incriminating, but still can be annoying.
A computer account that you use is not a somethiong that is only visible to you… and it might have stored some pretty sensitive stuff (love letters to Suse etc…)
