Ever think to yourself, “What was that web site I visited yesterday? Something about shoes?”
In your browser, press Ctrl+H. A side panel appears, showing a history of sites you’ve visited.
In Firefox, the cursor appears in a Search box by default, so type in “shoes” and press Enter, and you’ll find sites with that word in the title or URL.
There’s also a View button. Press Alt+W, then Spacebar, and you can organize your browser history window by site, date, most visited, or most recently visited instead of the default that shows a combination of date and site.
When you’re done with the history sidebar, press Ctrl+H to toggle it off.
