    Internet is not really a playground for kids and having used the net for a long time I am aware that it's a very dangerous place.

    There should be a program that does fake surf now and then while you're away. Could be done in Python since it has net libraries for you to use. Simply create an AI program that acts like a person. Go through logical random searches, visit sites, pause (to pretend reading pages) then download files and so on. This AI would have a habit and would search for things at the same time each day ect...

    It would be very difficult (really) to profile a computer use who surf the net along with this AI person.

    Progenic made a program called 'Fake Surf' a few years ago, although it was mainly used for getting money from pay to surf programs for most people, that was it purpose to randomly surf the net while you weren't at your computer. I don't think it did search entries tho.
