    A Brilliant Cross-Browser History Searcher

    Posted: 21 Sep 2013 04:07 AM PDT

    If you're like me, you probably sometimes find yourself trying to remember details of a really interesting web site you visited a couple of days ago. So you fire up your browser, press Ctrl-H to view your browsing history, and then search. But the site you're looking for isn't there.

    And if you're like me, you probably use more than one web browser. Maybe a combination of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and perhaps Safari too. Which means that the fascinating site you're looking for could be in one of many places.

    Is there really no option except to fire up each browser in turn, to look through the history log? Thankfully, there's an easier way. Browsing History View is a simple program that displays your browsing history in one place, by automatically reading and combining your data from all the major browsers I just mentioned. It shows you the address you browsed to, the date and time, the total number of times you've visited that URL, and the browser you used. You can search or sort on any of those columns, thus making it pretty certain that you'll find what you were looking for.
