It's about time Google did this, imho.

When they get AdWords and AdSense wired up, this is going to become my browser's default home page. I agree with engine: it's about time.

It's a pretty good initiative, especially the Clear Web History part.

Definitely a step in the right direction, a big win for privacy advocates.

Now, if we get even more control, straight from that page, it would be gold.

i 've ust followed the link,,

And its identical to the screen I've been using for a long time.

There is not one item of previously unseen functionality here

Only visible difference

Links arranged vertically instead off accross bottom of screen

Or am i missing everything here

The Dashboard for Google Apps users doesn't show the Email section that normal GMail users have. One failing, in my opinion.

I just tried it and clicked on "edit personal information" - no information there, just blank boxes for me to fill in. Is dashboard providing data or collecting it?

Every time I clicked 'view information stored', it took me back to the main menu. Is it faulty?
