Web browsers store information from the websites you visit to facilitate your browsing experience. Web browsers allocate this information into cache, cookies or simply the history files. If you want to check the websites you have previously visited, you have to access your Web browser’s history files.

However, the problem is that Web browsers typically show you only the past visited websites and the date you visited them. They don’t usually show you in detail how often you visit them. This is where History Trends steps in. History Trends is a Chrome extension that displays detailed graphs and statistics of your browsing history.

Using History Trends:

You don’t have to be a tech-savvy person to use History Trends. As long as you can interpret simple numerical data and graphs, you are able to use this extension. History Trends allocates your browsing history into specific sections.

Why You Need History Trends:

For instance, after using this extension, you will definitely know if you have spent too much time on social networking sites, listening to music, and watching movies.

What Will Happen If you Completely Delete the Browsing History?

Deleting the history means you delete all data. Graphs and Statistics require data to function. Therefore if you completely erase your browsing history, you need to wait for it to collect more information. A few weeks of history files will not give as much as insight as months’ worth.
