If you have a Google Account and the Google Toolbar installed on your browser with PageRank enabled, you’re one step away from using Google Web History, a new feature that allows Google to keep track of every page you visit. This can be handy if you want to keep a record of your web surfing but it’s a hell of a profiling tool for Google, actually this is the closer that they profile you without inserting a RFID tag on you. Google’s “do no evil” philosophy is beginning to show some cracks with projects like this. We can use our own browser history for tracking our visited sites, probably in a way not so functional as this new Google feature allows, but it’s a matter of Mozilla, Microsoft or Opera to improve the browsers history features. Giving your data to Google means they will use it some how… let’s hope it’s for the best.
