  • (2021-02-04) Iñaki Jiménez Miranda: Amplía la info del historial de navegación. Recomendable.
  • (2021-01-18) Wayne Howard: Waiting for support of complete Chinese.
  • (2021-01-17) Egemen Ertuğrul: The search bar works really slow. It waits until all of the results are retrieved. At first, I thought the search bar wasn't working at all. I wish it would display results simultaneously while retrieving the results so I wouldn't have to wait.
  • (2020-12-25) 1055 brian: 我希望他能回归以前那个版本,现在这个版本我不喜欢
  • (2020-12-18) Alexander Shchadilov: This extension looks like a partial rip-off of the old "Improved History". However, it works and has a nice grayscale icon (not the same as you see in Chrome store).
  • (2020-11-25) benjamin957957: Love this extension. "Thanks for this. Much better than Chrome's own History. I was pulling my hair out desperately trying to find some important search history earlier. After installing this extension I was able to find them in a matter of minutes." -Nicholas Marks
  • (2020-11-22) James Long: Waste of time. The extension won't go back even four days. Further, the author is unresponsive to requests to fix it.
  • (2020-11-07) 01LuvDan: This is worse than chrome's own history function. If you wanna go back little further(like a week ago) and you click the date, it only shows a few or simply no any result, but I can find the history when I disabled the extension. I don't know, maybe I was wrong, hope there's any tips.

  • (2020-10-23) Steve Z: Pros: I LOVE that you can delete any particular hour from any particular day. Handy! It's visually easy to select previous days and weeks. Cons: There's no way to see entire history without manually searching "https" for example to bring up everything. There is no "Today" button, so if you go back quite a ways, good luck clicking your mouse forever to get back to today, or use the search function to search for today's date. Because it replaces Chrome's History you loose all functionality to delete history beyond whichever hour and day is showing on the screen. So this is a sacrifice. However I simply keep the extension disabled until I know that I want to delete a particular hour for a particular day lol
  • (2020-10-05) Gerardo Arteaga: Funciona a la perfección, tal y como se indica en la descripción.
  • (2020-09-23) Kelly Eng: works but is super slow and i can't find a way to turn it off for when you want to use the more basic history search as it's much faster for me (instead I have to remove the extension entirely)
  • (2020-09-21) Ryan Moloney: Original developer sold off the software, its now just adware. https://www.enigmasoftware.com/better-history-chrome-extension-hijacking-browser-ads https://old.reddit.com/r/Malware/comments/4cw9fz/lnkrus_redirect_malware_report/d1ohvtl/
  • (2020-09-20) John Winder: Thank you, does exactly what it says it will, and does it well.
  • (2020-09-10) 이상인: 이거 UI는 개발자스럽기는 하지만 은근히 좋아요. 다른 이름으로 있던거 썼었는데 없어진 줄 알고 아쉬웠는데 이렇게 있네요. It's nice. Highly recommended!
  • (2020-09-10) Wind Liu Shun: Only been using it for a week, loving it. There used to be a good chrome extension for this purpose but that was gone And for a long while I have to live with the chrome's own stupid history page. Finally I found this one! Beautiful! Thank you so much!!
  • (2020-02-22) Aa Ss: randomly will eventually redirect you to a virus site
  • (2020-02-04) yunlong hu: Add dark theme ,thank you

  • (2019-07-10) GO E: 为什么有些日期的历史记录显示没有??
  • (2019-06-02) Stefane Guevremont: This is the best history extension for Google Chrome. I would suggest these two items to make it even better: - Show the calendar from left to right (old to new) rather than from right to left (new to old) - The ability to select multiple sites
  • (2019-05-16) DiskSystem: Wonderful extension. I'd love for you to make a one for bookmarks on Chrome. Better Bookmarks.
  • (2019-04-30) Артем Еросеев: Находил и получше плагины. Никакого юзабилити. Поиск работает ручного поиска.
  • (2019-03-17) aione: 少了“24”小时制哦! 个人不习惯“12”小时制。。。 其他完美,日历改成其他模样就好了
  • (2019-03-12) György Mergl: Nekem ez tetszik a legjobban Részletes és legokosabb
  • (2019-02-15) War Wang: 样式不错,提个建议,本人25寸2K屏幕,win10的DPI放大到125%,历史记录文字毛边严重,而且感觉字体很小。
  • (2019-02-02) Alexandros Spyropoulos: The user Interface is awesome and it really helps you filter out your history and find what you are looking for, easy and quick.
  • (2019-01-25) Jankin Qin: 很有用,可以判断我当天是否加班了
  • (2019-01-21) Marco Uras: Wenn es funktionieren würde, wäre es sehr nützlich und hilfreich. Aber beim Klick auf ein Datum kommt immer wieder mal nur die Meldung: Sorry, keinen Verlauf gefunden. Und in welchem Format das Datum manuell eingegeben werden kann, ist auch nicht klar. Nach einigen Fehlversuchen passiert dann garnichts mehr und der Tab muss aktualisiert werden.
  • (2018-12-30) Alexey Galochkin: То, чего не хватает браузерам на основе chromium - просмотр истории по определенным дням и поиску по адресу\заголовку\дате посещения. Отличное расширение функционала

  • (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) Антон Шумилкин: 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?
