    So guys, do you think its a good idea to give Google even more data about your activities? Do you browse google while logged in?

    never browse with google logged in, one day i just went into google browsing history and they had all my links visited upto 2 years back ! I was very angry on the same, as it was on by default ! so i put it off, i removed all my history and after that time, i never browse while logged in. i also frequently go and check my browsing history in google.

    The big g does not care about what you as an individual searches for.

    Web History is only enabled when you have their toolbar installed. So aside from the terms you search for, and the results you click on, they have no idea of your browsing habits.
