Using Your Browser History To Predict Gender

I came across a very interesting website this morning. It analyzes your recent web wanderings and figures out if you're male or female. I just did it and here were the results:

Likelihood of you being FEMALE is 34%
Likelihood of you being MALE is 66%

These are the websites that were used to come to that conclusion:

google.com, yahoo.com, msn.com, aol.com, myspace.com, youtube.com, amazon.com, cnn.com, blogger.com, flickr.com, weather.com, webmd.com, foxnews.com (how the hell did that get in there?), huffingtonpost.com (that's more like it), rotten tomatoes.com, fark.com, boxofficemojo.com, wendys.com, marcustheatres.com

Give it a shot and tell me what you come up with...

Where are all of the porn sites?

Thomas said...

There's a simple explanation for that, Rocket. The analysis was done on my work computer. :P

Mine said 60% chance I was a female. My browser history and all cookies are deleted every time I close Firefox so it only had Yahoo.com to go on.

Thomas said...

Nice. I've heard that Firefox is quite kick-ass.

I am 100% female :)

Thomas said...

You certainly are, Moonlyte. :)

Not sure I want some computer poking around in my recent history. In fact, I meticulously keep them pruned and cleaned for that very reason.
