  • (2023-10-01) Drasko Divic: It looks really good and there are a lot of different options! Especially the so-called Dark fashion and historical times. I leave it installed and study!
  • (2023-09-20) Dokko: Great but it isn't working right now
  • (2023-09-16) Ismael Eduardo Guimarães: Gostei, mas surge esta mensagem. "Esta extensão não é considerada fidedigna pela Navegação segura melhorada." Podem resolver? Nota 3 por causa disto.
  • (2023-09-14) Butt McNut: fixes chrome. google is a blight on society. chrome is a leech on every fathomable level. it obviously shouldnt be on the user to do so much work, invest so much personal time, take risks with weird janky add-ons to fix something that masquerades as a "tool" and then doesnt include brutally obvious, boiler plate features like what f***ing time you visit websites. google.myactivity does this too, it technically has timeatamps but will just mysteriously omit parts of your history, include visits and then forget them later, if you visit the same thing twice it just deletes the first visit sometimes, none of which is at all explained to the user anywhere in their documentation.... why are people just ok with this? do we really want to be wasting our finite time on earth trying to figure out if the tools we are coerced into interacting with daily are dog**** because of incompetence, "user error", or something more insideous like google actually not wanting you to know about the composition of your internet history because then you might realize something about yourself and interact less? chrome records the timestamps. they just refuse to show it to you. they hate you. they think you were born to have amazon links to cheap product knockoffs blasted into your face every time you were stupid enough to try to google something again, even though we all know by now youre never finding what you were searching for, youre just a hamster running in a wheel so smug pillowhumpers who dont know where food comes from never have to work a real job doing anything anyone actually wants or needs. anyway. great extension it fixes my problem but i really shouldnt have needed to look for it, and you shouldnt have needed to write it
  • (2023-09-13) ty W: It would be even better if could query by entering date rather than select, and able to specifying query field.
  • (2023-08-20) yong suk CHOI: UI가 제일 좋긴 한데, 좀 이상한 오류가 있어요 동일한 이름?의 사이트면 뭔가 중복으로 기입되는지.. 과거에 이용했던 사이트를 한번 들어갔다가 다시 기록을 확인해 보면... 이상하게 기록에서 삭제가 됩니다. 보면 크롬에서 삭제가 된 것은 아니고, 뭔가 오류가 있는 듯 합니다. 다른 확장 프로그램으로 보면 다 제대로 뜨는 데 , 뭔가 이상하네요
  • (2023-08-20) Matteo Caprioli: It works neatly, better than chrome default history
  • (2023-08-14) Dulani Woods: I use my Chrome history for a lot of professional stuff (looking back and gathering data). This extension has saved me TONS of time (I would previously export the history to gather data... no longer)!
  • (2023-08-14) Kyle Lu: need bigger remove button
  • (2023-08-01) Deek Schwartz: this is almost perfect. the only thing it's missing is "jump to day/history" when searching for a piece of text. neither native chorme history nor this extension supports it
  • (2023-07-20) Sab S: Powerful, did what I wanted which was do a advanced search edit, 2 years later, July 2023: History items have been wiped for some reason. Even doing a gogole search does not show.
  • (2023-05-24) Benedek Nagy: A blessing, it shows the history with URLs, easy to browse by date... A great improvement on Chrome's (shamefully dumb) built-in history.
  • (2023-05-16) JiJiang Liu: 好用 , 但是能不能把删除全部的选项做的隐蔽一点, 好怕点到那个删除全部。 不过删除全部搜索结果的很好用
  • (2023-05-10) Thriverist α: Very helpful for dev. Thank you so much.
  • (2023-04-27) Dmytro Korolkov: Great plugin! Really useful! Thank you!
  • (2023-04-18) Micky Macanori: Just doesn't work anymore, I guess. Oh well.
  • (2023-04-15) kaka wa: 自己做了机翻的中文,在插件目录里\egehpkpgpgooebopjihjmnpejnjafefi\版本号\locales下面新建文件夹zh,把这个文件放在里面 wwpa.lanzouo.com/ic3AN0t2ozof,然后修改manifest.json文件里default_locale,该en为zh,重启浏览器就行了
  • (2023-04-13) Carl-Henrik Blomqvist: Very useful extension.
  • (2023-04-04) Mick Van_Dick: There are some requests for improvement, but overall I like it, thank you :-)
  • (2023-03-23) aggree joke: 搜索不太好用,大小写必须完全匹配,而且也不支持多字段检索
  • (2023-03-21) Ysis Sodré: Very useful extension
  • (2023-03-18) / Wong: 好用哈
  • (2023-02-11) mad ara: amazing
  • (2023-02-09) Rafael Miranda Soares: Excelente!
  • (2023-01-27) Cesar EP: missing a tree view to connect visits to the same domain, with that would be a 5 star
  • (2023-01-21) CyraX: I just installed it.. From looks of it and function it's good but just want to confirm Can it store history for more than 90 days? or it will also remove history records once 90 days are passed just like chrome native history?
  • (2023-01-14) Chuck Colsch: Truly OUTSTANDING !! — HUGELY Improves Browser’s History Display; & Reports the EXACT TIME that Each Page was Open. A HUGE “THANK YOU” to the Author for Providing the MUCH NEEDED OPTION To _ALWAYS_ Open in a New Tab!! —AND Many Other Excellent Options. I Tested Many Other History Extensions —> THIS IS the Very BEST!!
  • (2022-12-29) Andrew D.: Really poor search. If you search for two terms, like "bread butter", you won't find anything unless the words are in the title in exactly the same order: "bread butter". You won't find, say, "bread and butter". You can't search for a URL (just the domain name gets searched). Native Chrome search does all that.
  • (2022-12-15) Sei Hisou: Please add previous closed recovery, it would be perfect
  • (2022-12-13) Pat MySecret: Great! I'd feel a little better about it if it was trusted by the system.
  • (2022-11-27) 炒饼西瓜: The date selection is not very convenient, whether it can be made into a calendar form
  • (2022-11-20) Sven Arnold: It certainly looks nicer than the standard Brave History tab, but ... * why is the time indicator reversed, progressing from right to left? Coder from Japan? * why is there no way to mark and restore more than a single tab at a time? 99% of the time I search the browser history it's because I want to restore tabs. Something that's super easy in Firefox. Why are all Chromium extensions only focused on deleting stuff. Seriously, what sites are you ppl visiting that the only purpose of the browser history you can think of is deleting it^^. This extension makes browsing the history more convenient, but doesn't add any useful functionality. It doesn't enable me to do anything I wasn't able to do with a stock Brave install. Pretty, but ultimately worthless. Add a proper restore function and I'll change my mind and the rating in a heartbeat.
  • (2022-11-17) Dakota Mathewson: you lose all of your history if chrome updates and enables safe browsing
  • (2022-11-10) James Madison: Everything works ok except that I cannot find chrome browser's history journey anymore, which is a new feature in the latest chrome version. An button for switching to chrome default history page or chrome history journey page.
  • (2022-09-05) キラル: Caused Youtube random history
  • (2022-08-15) 刘汶佳: After I delete the history of a site (about 2,000 records), the plugin keeps showing up as loading... is this a performance issue? I don't feel like this problem can be fixed by waiting
  • (2022-08-10) Илья Дуденков: Заменяет родную историю Хрома на человеческую. Можно удалить всю историю целиком по фильтру поиска, а не по датам! Очень удобно.
  • (2022-08-09) rib9022: Отличное приложение, позволяет быстро листать историю по датам
  • (2022-07-05) Marcus Schoen: Used to be a great alternative to Google Chrome's virtually useless History. Now it just crashes every time. What a pity.
  • (2022-03-19) JP: Unable to find inside history dating back to yesterday! Entering the website in the search field, nothing found! Ridiculous
  • (2022-03-19) yens R: 非常好用,
  • (2022-03-15) Azka Ainun: Really helpful extension. Can't recommend it enough
  • (2022-02-27) zw k: nice product , please add function that make one can search according to a certain day just as 2021/11/30, I hope to search history several months ago , It's too slow to turn page one by one.
  • (2022-02-23) lve chen: 1. 希望多次打开同一个URL, 每次都有记录, 而不是只记录最后一次 2. 希望能同时搜索域名, 标题和日期 说没有24小时制的去看看设置
  • (2022-02-19) Mahdy Fouad: amazing. keep it great

  • (2020-12-22, v:3.9.6) Scot House: Change Device Name
    Better History is showing a previous name for one of my devices. It's a PC that I renamed. How do I get Better History to display the updated name?
  • (2020-11-12, v:3.9.6) Jesse Vaught: 12-hr timestamps instead of 24-hr?
    Is there any way to display the time as 12-hr instead of 24-hr (military time)? E.g., 1:15 PM instead of 13:15?
  • (2020-10-09, v:3.9.6) James Long: History seach does not work
    When going back even four days, the app says that there is no history. Searching the history fails as well. If I disable the app, my stock history works as expected. Still crappy.. but at least it works.
  • (2020-10-03, v:3.9.6) James Long: Better HIstory does not work
    When I search the history, it seems to only go back a few days. When on a day to back even a few days (4), it says that there is no history.
  • (2020-09-22, v:3.9.6) Anton Sh.: New permissions are required for the extension
    The extension recently shut off and now Chrome's offering to turn it on again, but on condition of granting it new permissions, namely "Manage downloaded files". Any ideas what it's all about?
  • (2020-09-10, v:3.9.5) Oshyan Greene: Used to work but now only shows and searches history from today
    This extension used to work great, but now it's only showing and searching in history from the current day. What happened? I don't want to have to clear history to try again. Any other solution?
