Default Google and Search Results

OK, I need some explanation before I go quietly crazy. Every now and again I do some keyword/phrase searching on Google. I know that Google watching leads to madness so I try not to do it too much.

Anyhoo, can anyone explain to me why I type my search phrase into Google, say 'Web Designer in Bristol' and get page one in one browser and page three in another? Same PC, same location.

My regular browser has page one but IE has page three. Are results based on my browsing habits and what Google thinks I want to see?

do you login to Google automatically in one browser

This happened to me and didn't realise I had promoted my own site to the top of my personal searches which was nowt to do with its true position.

Thought i was number one for 3 days until i relised!! What a plum!

Funny you should mention that! Just signed out of Google and it drops the result lower but still on the first page compared to page three in IE. Less curious but still curious
