I would say the author also doesn't know how to completely erase all history of a browsing session. History, cache, top sites, images of web pages stored on the hard drive (in Safari at least), Flash cookies and other data. I'm not sure how long the trail goes but a web session generates a lot of junk that gets collected and stored in a lot of different places all of which provide information about web sites that were visited.

I will agree, however, it's silly to write a whole article on it. MacWorld is a vast website of knowledge. Those people that cannot clear their history are likely not reading most of the things on this site. Who would read what they don't comprehend? :-P
For the lad who thinks this is an elitist attitude... not everyone is an elitist. Some are just realistic. Idiocy comes in many forms: Including ignorantly obnoxious. Have a nice life.

For those who reply aggressively to comments: Many of us don't bother returning back to the articles after the first time. We won't be reading those replies. So be sure to write them in a fashion that amuses you very much. We wouldn't want you to be bored. ;-)

For those not realizing it, these are cookies that flash media stores on your computer that neither you nor your browser can clear. They are expressly for tracking you. Completely evil. The only way to clear them is to go the flash player settings manager applet on adobe's website, which is so awkward and clunky that they have to write: "Note: The Settings Manager that you see above is not an image; it is the actual Settings Manager."
And Adobe wonders why we don't trust them!
