Site Guesses Your Gender via Browsing History

July 31, 2008 – 6:23 AM

This is a pretty old issue, but this is an interesting new implementation of an old idea. Using your browser history and by matching your browsing habits the site attempts to guess your gender with a weighting system according to the gender demographics for a list of fairly popular sites.

It’s not super accurate unless you are really stereotypical in your Internet usage habits, and it won’t work if you don’t accept any cookies and flush everything regularly.
