Default History eraser?

I discovered (today) that the company I security guard for decided it'd be a good idea to give us intERnet instead of the evil intRAnet. Question being: Just in case they decide to check up on us, is there a way for me to block the computer from saving a history of where I've been (the profile on here isn't a system admin one...) without downloading anything?

Doesn't matter what you do. Their server will log all connections.

Simple thing to do (and they'll appreciate it) is to ask what their policies or usage guidlines are, then stay within those with a margin of comfort. Do you have logins? Or is it a shared system?

i have also noticed that if you hit Ctrl-H while in the browser, it will bring up the history. from there, i THINK you can just wipe yourself clean. but willwren'* right, if they knew what they were doing and really wanted to get you, the prolly could.

rjolly...thanks, got to it I was just looking for a way to clear the history HERE, since it'd be too easy for them to check it here. I know the server logs all usage, but generally, they're too lazy to check it...like the cameras Only the cameras are MY responsibility, along with seemingly everything else around here
