When the Chrome history page is not sufficient to provide the information you’re looking for, you’re in luck. Google already allows managing Web Activity in My activity, the company is now adding a dedicated page for that in Chrome via memories feature. The feature is available at chrome://memories page in Canary and is working as of today when enabled.
Chrome-like every web browser stores information about visits to websites in History and makes it available to users when they visit the chrome://history page.
This can be also opened by pressing the Ctrl+H keyboard shortcut.
Each entry on the history page displays the visited page’s URL, favicon, time stamp, and page title. You can use the search box to narrow down what you’re looking for from browsing history.
Google Chrome Memories Page
Meet memories feature in Chrome.
The feature lists all your web activity in a card-based view in the Chrome browser and allows you to search through it. The information is displayed from tab groups and bookmarks and Chrome history.
Other than Google “My Activity”, which allows you to see and delete your web & app activity, chrome://memories is the one that displays your previous web activity in one place.
Each memory card encourages you to perform previous searches done from the Omnibox.
