    Great read!!

    My overkill method is to run totally sandboxed and close the browser between sites. I configure auto delete in sandboxie to completely clear out anything before opening the browser again and going to the next site. I use private browsing and don't retain history.

    i thought it was interesting that many companies inc Microsoft (and potentially HuffPo) were actually found to have been using history sniffing.

    shame on them.
