I do many kinds of browsing. In some cases having form history is useful like when I use Dunn and Bradstreet to research companies. In this case I want to record my trails so I could reuse it later. But for other things like Google where I sometimes view 'irrelevant' content there may be a need to delete often. I know there is a blanket method to delete through the browser itself but if there was a feature were one could right click on a form box and select the option 'delete history from only this form or page' this would be useful.

       Tell us more about this 'irrelevant' content which it's so important to have deleted...

       'irrelevant' content..... Let me explain.... the other day a coworker stormed into my office she quickly needed to get more information on 'Asian flu' unfortunately typing in the word Asian on the search form showed a completely different entry. That's what I mean by 'irrelevant' content.

       does a coworker not spend most of their time out in the milking sheds?

       I'd probably forget to clean up after myself until it's too late - I'd rather have some way of entering and exiting a "stealth mode" where my inputs aren't hashed into the field autocompletion cache.

       Good luck with that.   

       The feds are looking at everything anyway. TIA, Carnivore, Eschelon, or whatever name they're giving it today. Not to mention employers.
