Google broadens, renames Search History

Newly minted Web History archives searches on Google and Web pages visited regardless of the search engine used.

Google has renamed its "Search History" service "Web History" and broadened its coverage. Previously, the service would record your Google searches. Now, Web History can associate the web pages you visit with your Google Account. Web History keeps a list of the times and links to the web pages viewed and searches conducted. Users have to be signed in to their Google account and need to have the Google Toolbar installed with PageRank enabled.
