Alongside the surprise news that Google has bought a videoconferencing firm, the company's official blog has another revealing bit of info to share.

Google is bringing out something called Web History, which pretty much seems to do what it says on the tin. Basically it lets you access and search Google's account of everything you've been surfing on the web, which I guess would be handy if you surf across various computers.
