Ask.com could be the obsessive-compulsive searcher's best friend. The fifth-largest search engine is trying to carve out a niche by using—gasp!—privacy as a marketing tool. The company is introducing AskEraser a feature that will let you get rid of your search history. The engine also says it only holds on to IP addresses or cookies that might possibly be used to link them back to searches for 18 months.
Some note, it's not a perfect system, but it seems for now you can go ahead and search for stores that carry Kwell. Your secret is safe.
