Comments on: Does Google Know Your MSN & Y! Searches? Search Engine Optimisation Ireland Tue, 31 Mar 2015 10:03:56 +0100 hourly 1 By: Bill Slawski Fri, 17 Nov 2006 20:43:37 +0000 Thank you, Richard.

I wasn’t too excited about the Microsoft patent application because it seems so similar to what Google is doing with Google suggest.

But the Firefox query history, with the portability of queries was a total surprise, and as you note, is a privacy concern that I hadn’t even guessed at until I saw it happen in front of me.

Definitely good to hear from you, and have someone to bounce ideas off concerning some of the new technology hinted at in patents from the search engines.

I’ve been a closet fan for quite a while – you’re their in my reader.

Thank you for your kind words.

I found myself extremely surprised that Firefox was sharing query history. I’m going to have to pay more attention to developments in browsers these days, too. I wonder if IE 7 has a similar feature. :)
