...or, Read Much?
A quick tech note: I use Firefox's address bar autocomplete feature a lot—start typing a URL, and Firefox presents a list of previously visited sites whose URLs contain that text. I like it better than Bookmarks. But I noticed that feature's response time was slowing down, as was the general speed of the browser. In an effort to speed performance, I cleared out my Firefox browser history yesterday. It appears to have helped, although I might just be suffering the same bias as when I was little and thought new shoes made me run faster.
I last cleared my browsing history in August. Yesterday my history contained over 26,000 unique URLs. That's almost 220 URLs a day, not counting repeat visits (NY Times, KELO, Mundt Library, South Dakota Legislature, YouTube, BarackObama.com,...). If each URL were a page in a book, I've been reading (or at least browsing) a book a day. Uff da!
