I have been wanting more of a personal touch from Google for awhile, and it looks like they are coming up with the goods.
Google Labs just came out with Search History, in beta.
Now you can choose to tell Google to watch over you and help out.
There are definitely privacy issues surrounding some of the more ‘out there’ personal search features (e.g. social networking ‘those who searched also searched’) but it is great to see this first step, and I look forward to more!
I always like the integrated experience with Google. When I sign up for something I don’t have to go to a DIFFERENT place. www.google.com is still the entry point and it just knows that I want a personal touch.
