New SERP snippet "You recently searched for facts" ?

Msg#: 4618201 posted 7:37 pm on Oct 21, 2013 (gmt 0)

After doing some searching last night, clicking through to a result and doing some reading, then returning to the original SERP, I noticed a notice "You recently searched for facts" below one fo the results that I had not yet visited.

Has anyone else seen this?

Yes, I am seeing this for quite a few days. From an ip Google keeps track of all the pages you have visited and even the searches through its SERP and it displays below. After an hour it will show "You have searched for facts about an hour ago" . But one more thing is that I really do not see the same things each time even though I perform same searches.

I see a range of possible reactions.

"Oh, how lovely! The search engine remembers what I was looking for and it's bending over backward to be helpful, just like a human!"

"The ### thing follows my every move! Is there no privacy anywhere?"

"My, my, how interesting. So that's why my roommate deleted his browser history after borrowing my computer!"

I guess they're awfully sure that much more than 50% of their users will go for #1.
