Using a search engine is the only way to find exactly what you are looking for among millions of websites. However, the disadvantage to using a search engine is that you may need to go extra lengths to protect your privacy, especially if you use a public computer. After performing a search, the words you type into the search box will auto-fill into the space when a similar search is typed. Luckily, it's possible to clear the history on a search engine. The method you use to cledo so depends on your Web browser.
