This is such a simple trick that if I tell you how, you will laugh your hearts out. But its extremely useful nonetheless. Today’s browsers have this intelligent ability to remember each and every web page you visit automatically. Its kindda annoying to let others know what you were actually surfing (LOL, you better say yes). So how do you delete that history? One way is to clear all the previously surfed history. But you do not intend to let go of all of them, do you? So how do you delete a certain webpage URL from your Firefox or IE browser?

  • Suppose the url was
  • Type iwant… at the address bar and I am sure you will find all the webpages and sub-pages with the name of that, lined up.
  • Just press the down key to reach the page you wish to delete and press Shift+Delete. That’s it.

Easy I know. So why don’t you start wiping the evindences of your crime. Lol.

That’s a nifty little trick! Now that IE 8 is out, there’s a built-in “private” web browsing feature that you can use when you know you don’t want your history saved.
