Viewing Your Browsing History
Another way to revisit Web pages you have viewed in the past is to use Google Chrome's history feature. Chrome keeps track of your history for up to ten weeks.
To view your history, click the Chrome button and select History. The History page is now displayed in a new tab, as shown in Figure 5.

Of course, you may not want your entire browsing history visible to others using your Web browser. To delete individual items from the History page, check each item and then click the Remove Selected Items button.
To clear your entire browsing history, click the Clear Browsing Data button, which displays the Clear Browsing Data dialog box. Check those items you want to delete: Browsing Data, Download History, Cookies and Other Site and Plug-In Data, Caches Images and Files, Passwords, Autofill Form Data, Hosted App Data, or Content Licenses. Next, pull down the Obliterate the Following Items From list and select how much data to delete: last hour, last day, last week, last 4 weeks, or from the beginning of time. Click the Clear Browsing Data button and the selected items will be deleted.
