How to delete/clear drop-down list of Google past searches

One of my friends was asking me how to remove the drop-down list of past searches in Google. And I realized that I had thought about it but I did not know. So I searched a bit and found out the answer.
Microsoft Internet Explorer
1. Go to the “Tools” menu.
2. Select “Internet Options” and the “Content” tab.
3. Within the “Personal information” area, select “AutoComplete.”
4. Click on “Clear Forms.” You can also un-check the “Forms” box in this window to keep this information from being stored in the future.
5. Click “OK” to exit.

Slashdot redesign

I noticed the redesigned Slashdot website today. It looks much better now. Searched a little bit and it seems that the new CSS design was selected from a pool of user submitted designs. The winning design was created by Alex Bendiken and the runner up design was by Peter Lada. Some users have said that the runner up design is better.
