The default History page on Google Chrome provides quite information, yet it missing something important — you can’t jump into a specific data there.
In order to sort Chrome history by date, you need to be creative!
Luckily, there are several options you could try. In this guide, I will show you some of the best options to sort Chrome history by date easily.
#1 Use Google My Activity to see Chrome history by date
Google My Activity is a tool that tracks your activity when using Google’s product. As long as you logged in to your Google account, then this tool would be useful for both mobile and desktop devices.
1. Go to Google My Activity and click Filter by date & product. You may also put some query there.
2. Select a date or a date range.
3. Check Chrome, then click Apply.
4. Now you can see your Chrome history on a chronological order. Google will bundle each item based on its category.
5. You can click on each category to see more details.
If you confused with the bundled style, tap on the hamburger menu, then select Item view. It would look into something like this.
#2 Try using Chrome Better History extension
Chrome Better History is an 82KB extension that allows you to sort Google Chrome’s history by date. This extension basically replaces the default history page (Ctrl+H) with its own configuration where you can jump into a certain date easily.
The beauty of this extension is it doesn’t act as a spyware as the extension itself was an open-source project. However, you probably won’t be pleased by its interface that looks quite old — a similar style from Chrome in 2012.
#3 History Trends can see history from the past 100 days
History Trends serve a purpose as a productivity tracking tool, but it also comes with a “time-machine” feature where you can read your browser history data from the past 100 days from today.
To get the data, click on the extension’s icon, on the Top 10 Busiest Days click View Top 100. From there, you can select the available dates and see your history on that day.
Alright, that’s 3 different ways to sort Chrome history by date. I would like to use Google My Activity services as the main option because it’s really accurate, covering all of your connected devices, and packed nicely by Google unless you decide to remove them.
