I know that at work even if I delete my Internet history, that someone knowledgeable can dig up where I have been surfing – BUT can they see exactly where I have been on password protected sites (as in personal email/fool postings etc…?)

Depends on how dedicated they are.

Mostly, they could tell how long you were on a site, how many times you hit a page (either by refreshing or clicking a link) on that site, yada yada yada. That can actually be done very easily, just by checking the logs.

If they wanted more info, they could get it, but they wouldn't need it to fire you. Simply proving you went to a non-work related site over and over and over would be grounds.

Speaking of that, I should *probably* get back to work....
