Can you be more specific? I get to account management, and don't know 
where to go from there given the bevy of choices.

Presumably this history only deals with google activities when you're 
logged in? Searching when not logged in would still have IP address, 
at least, captured?

I've got adblock and flashblock loaded in firefox, and achieve much of 
what you describe already. Noscript adds to this party / isn't some 
javascript a good / useful thing?
