Google Chrome launches topic-based search in browsing history

Google Chrome

Google Chrome – web browser that has recently changed its logo – has just launched a new tool that is going to make it easier to access the user’s browsing history when performing a search.

Google Chrome’s “Journeys” are now available for all versions of the browser across operating systems

As of now, thanks to “Journeys”, the name given to this functionalityusers will receive a recommendation to revisit links and Internet addresses they have already visited when performing a related search.

That is, if the user puts in the navigation bar of Google Chrome, for example, “trip to New York”, a section that says “Retrieve your searches” will appear, where they will be shown the sites related to this topic that they visited in the past.

With this new tool it will be much easier to be able to revisit that web page you saw in the past and now you don’t remember its address. Until now you had to go to the browsing history of Google Chrome -or the browser you were using- to try to find that particular website you saw days or weeks ago. Now it will be much easier to find it.

In addition, “Journeys” will show first the results of those pages in which the user has spent more time browsing, understanding that they were of interest to them and that, possibly, they may want to consult them again for whatever reason now that they are performing a related search in Google.

Google has also pointed out that users will be able to mark web addresses so that they are not displayed in the “Journeys” in the future, if they so wish. In fact, there will also be the possibility to completely disable the “Journeys” through the Google Chrome settings. This is especially useful if you are using a computer where several different people are browsing, in order to preserve the user’s privacy and not reveal clues about their history browsing history.

Google Chrome currently already offers Journeys in all versions of the browser for all operating systems as long as they are used in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese or Turkish.
