How To: View Browser History In Google Chrome For Android

With the introduction of Google Chrome for Android, it became apparent that Google was going to replace its trusty mobile browser for the convenience of a single synced browser experience. Many Android users wondered why Chrome wasn’t the default browser to begin with, but nevertheless, they were happy to see Chrome available, and ecstatic to see it becomes the default browser with the introduction of the Nexus 7. I was one of the happy Chrome for Android adopters, and while its adoption has awarded me with numerous features, it has not been without its nuisances.

One such nuisance is easily viewing your browsing history. While on the old Android browser it was as simple as clicking on the menu and navigating to Bookmarks > History, Google Chrome for Android has no such option and has thus made it a chore to check your browser history.

Hopefully Google will make it easier for users in the future, but for now, here’s how to check your browsing history in Google Chrome for Android:

  • In the address bar, type chrome://history and voila, there’s your browsing history.

Again, not the most intuitive way of doing it, but what we’re stuck with for now.

To make things even easier, be sure to bookmark your history page for future quick click access.
