Browsing History View – all your web viewing from multiple browsers in one neat box [Freeware]

If you’re like most people, you will run at least two web browsers on your computer, if not more, just to give yourself some flexibility with the different sites out there. We use Chrome and Firefox mostly, and switch between them to check different site features, or access content at different speeds and with different browsing functions and plugins.

The one disadvantage of all this switching is it’s hard to remember which sites you visited on which days in case you need to backtrack, which is why we really like this new Browsing History View freeware program from our old friend Nirsoft. The program elegantly combines the viewing history of up to seven browsers, including Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer, and presents the results in an easy to read table layout.

What we particularly like is the fact that you can then export the results out to a link clickable HTML format report, which can make it a snap to work your way down the list looking for a particular site. It may not be quite as seamless as clicking in the table, but it works.

The software also gives you a more detailed look at your web viewing, including the numbers of visits, the place you came from and, great if you’re managing computers with multiple users, which user profile did the actual accessing. The whole thing may not sound like much, but if you’re one of those who likes to keep a trail of your browsing and use different machines, browsers and configurations, this could be a very handy tool indeed.
