As internet privacy is a serious argument and issue nowadays, the measure to delete the private search queries will gain greater popularity in the long run. The opportunity to stake out private space on the Web becomes more critical as Internet use grows more deeply embedded into daily life and as Web sites and advertisers seek information on user behavior to send them targeted messages.
