Hello there! I have bad experience last semester because I did not clear my private data at the public computer in the library. Someone login to my Friendster and tell me, that my account is there (include my user name and the password). From that time, I try to take care of my private data. I log out and if I use Mozzilla I choose Tools = clear my private data. Although I'm using my own laptop I will do the same. Just becareful guys, people around you is not always good.

I don't like to use Mozilla because it restores you private data just like with your experience so I always clear my private data as much as possible... same with my cellphone if I use it for browsing...

Well, If I ever log into a public computer and am looking at private things I would always double check to make sure that I have logged out. Cause yes, you wouldn't want anybody looking at your private emails or anything like that. I hate it when someone finds out your password, because then you have to change it and not only that, you might have to change it for more sites.
