Submission + - Generating Meta-collages from browser history

bobdole3k writes: With some simple javascript & scheme code (under the AGPL) its possible to sniff a users browser history. A new browser history sniffing site uses this to generate a collage of the sites you visit. Before you get worried, it uses a list of "web2.0" sites, so the collage will (probably) be appropriate (unless you don't want your colleagues knowing about your slashdot/blogging habits). An interesting application of potentially scary technology. While the results by them selves are kind of interesting, the collage also serves as a cool illustration of the privacy concerns surrounding browser history sniffing.
