Re: Web history backends and privacy issues


I've got mixed feeling about this.

I do a lot of web development and I often have to clear my cache, just
to make sure the changes caught up, but I really love the idea to keep
all the websites I browsed even if I deleted the cache. I wish the
extension be available for

Since it is a concern to delete "browsing history" I suggest to not tie
it to the whole "browser cache" itself but to specific part of it
(yesterday or the day before).

A better idea would simply have an option in beagle-setting to flush
whatever index you wish.

BTW. deleting browsing history is just not a thing about obscene stuff
you want to hide. It is also  about very serious life or death matter.
If you are chinese, burmese or from Kyrgyzstan deleting your browsing
history is an act of "liberation" and freedom of consciousness that we
Free and Open source software user/developer should try help out
