If only it wasn't called "mySearches."  Where computers are concerned,
I have a knee-jerk reaction against "My..." anything dating back to
Microsoft days.  I think it was "My Network Places" that did me in.

"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within
limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add
'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's
will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."
--Thomas Jefferson
