Windows 7: Google search history stored online?

Google search history stored online?

The title says it all...

Within that last 2 days I have completely re-installed my Windows 7 machine. Only today did I install Google Chrome and have just done a search on iGoogle

The purpose of the search was to look up game development/creation software but to my surprise when I typed 'Game' it showed something I searched for at least a month ago, maybe more


I'm now led to believe that google stores previous search information online and am starting to wonder what other information it's storing.
