This is just a shortcut to Chrome history page.
When installed, it will add "History" button to your browser's toolbar.
Click the icon and you'll open the "history" page. That's all this "extension" does.
There are some options available: you can set the button to open the history page in new tab or in the current tab and, if you want, you can add it to the context menu.
**Questions & Answers**
Why adding separate extension to access history when it’s accessible with two clicks from the menu?
-- Because with the history button in the toolbar you’ll do it in one click, which is 50% faster :)
But extensions eat system memory, why wasting resources just for quick shortcut to the history?
-- The history button doesn’t “eat” memory. In technical terms, it uses non-persistent background page, which means chrome doesn’t need to reserve memory for the history extension (check the Chrome Task Manager if you don’t trust us -- when you click on the history icon it will start the extension, open the history page and release the memory right after that)
Why not just use a bookmark to the history page instead of installing separate extension?
-- You could, but you’ll need more clicks to access the history bookmark from the menu or you’ll need to have the bookmarks bar open. For people like me the bookmarks bar is not a good choice (it takes from the vertical space of the browser) and one small history button in the toolbar is more convinient.
If I install the history button, is it easy to remove the extension later?
-- Yes, you can remove it with literally two clicks (just right-click on the history button and select “Remove from Chrome”)
How to access the History Button options?
-- Right-click on the history icon and select “Options”.
How to open the history page in the current tab instead of opening new tab?
-- Right-click on the history button and select “Options”, then uncheck the first checkbox
How to add shortcut to history to the context menu?
-- Go to the options page (see above) and check the respective checkbox (“Add history button to context menu”)
How to change the history icon?
-- Currently you can’t, but in the next version (coming soon) we’ll add this functionality
Is it possible to add the history button to chrome apps page?
-- Currently you can, but in future it will be possible only on Chrome OS devices. To do that just install our History Button app (copy the link below and paste it in new tab):
