  • (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: 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.
  • (2022-07-05) Ko ala: W plugin
  • (2022-07-03) Ibrahem: love it !
  • (2022-06-28) ??: 希望可以更改主题色 hoping for customizable theme colour
  • (2022-06-25) Sab S: Powerful, did what I wanted which was do a advanced search
  • (2022-06-16) Andy Green: Does this extension have an option to automatically filter browsing history? I wanted to write a list of keywords and URLs to be automatically removed from the history, but I couldn't find this option.
  • (2022-06-09) Heath (Laryngectomee.eth): Is there not an option to export history? Other than that, this is a huge step-up over Brave's history page.
  • (2022-05-31) Freddy P.: A good option, which is missing, would be to be able to select multiple urls to open them. And if the selection of mulitple urls can be done quickly without having to check them one by one, it would be all right. That's why only 3 stars.
  • (2022-05-21) Icaro Carrier: It's a really great extension in fact and loved it because it help med a lot. But for some reason, all of my history got deleted on May 20th and I don't even know why. Neither if it was my browser fault or extension fault.
  • (2022-05-13) Hamada 3IDO: This is better, brave's history search sucks.
  • (2022-05-04) Снежана Горожанкина: doesnt work
  • (2022-05-04) yo milo: Almost perfect, it needs a way to organize history by website.
  • (2022-04-23) FlameMaster Dark: I want to delete the selected history, not one by one. Could you add a function to select history like the original?
  • (2022-04-21) T S: MDNのサイトを開いたら、ページタイトルのタグ名がHTMLタグとして読み込まれました。XSS脆弱性あるようなので削除します。
  • (2022-04-16) Hong: I love the UI so much, however I think the developer can add a feature to choose for the year section, or we can get for a calander to choose the date more easier or more effciency. The way for now is good for short term, but a classic calander is needed, thank you!!!
  • (2022-04-09) Any reason why it won't show history from other devices? Just spent half an hour trying to figure out why chrome wasnt syncing across my devices, it was actually just this extension wouldnt show it for some reason. All the history was there, it just wasnt appearing when this was enabled. Absolutely wont even slightly consider saying a nice thing let alone keeping it installed until such a basic bug is fixed.
  • (2022-04-09) Abhinav Singh: This is actually a better type of history! It solved many of the problems I had with the normal history.
  • (2022-04-07) JubJub Forder: Very useful - why doesn't chrome have this already?
  • (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
  • (2022-02-10) S Y: How to search the history according to a specific date or time period?
  • (2022-02-09) Mohamed Fofana: Thank you for the hard work. I was able to retrieve valuable information using your extension! Some critical reviewers seem much entitled, considering the developer(s) invested time to develop this (very) useful and free app. Thanks again! Cheers
  • (2022-02-03) Aleksandr Khrol: Следует доработать систему поиска.
  • (2022-02-02) Alexander Lu: Pretty good so far, but please fix the devices feature so that ALL your windows on other devices are being shown, currently only seeing one window on my other device even though I have multiple open.
  • (2022-01-18) 孔垂鑫: Thanks to the author, it is very useful! But this plugin have a problem in Edge 97, ctrl+h can not open in a new tab.
  • (2022-01-14) Sagittarius: 接近完美
  • (2022-01-13) Mik Scheper: Displays dates in that confusing US date format, even though my browser and Google settings are set to display dates normally. That makes this plug-in a non-starter, and the Firefox equivalent doesn't have this problem, and it looks better.

  • (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?
