    Thanks, Jerry and HTG.

    I've been trying to point this out to people for some time now, especially for 'road warriors' and others who might have download limits. Bookmarked

    When I'm tired of seeing ads for all of the products I have recently checked out on the web, I clear the temporary internet files. Or when I'm tired of companies seeing everywhere I've been and every product I've seen on the web.

    I'd be surprised if that helps much. Google probably keeps its own records independent of temporary Internet Files. Perhaps you're thinking of Cookies which is different from TIFs and is more often used by trackers.

    It probably helps a little. At least it feels like I have more privacy when I don't see ads for products I just looked at.
