Following today's newsgroup discussion, I'm wondering if we should have doc on cleaning history, typed history, cache, etc. Currently, cleaning history does not necessarily clean history.dat and localstore.rdf. localstore.rdf is a text file, and you can retrieve some info from other files if you open them in Notepad. There will be at least two problems: Privacy is mostly an OS issue, so we'll have to discuss OS privacy and security. The upside is system adminstrators will be interested. The downside is that OS is probably outside of our or users' expertise. The second problem is we can do nothing about e-mail, which is way more sensitive than history, bookmarks, etc.
Personally, I think our efforts would be better-spent making the profile not world-readable and then not having to explain to people what information we're protecting... ;)
