Get your Web Browsing History in data friendly format

 Chrome has a history you can generally save.  Firefox does not.  I could care less what Edge or Safari do. But to pull your browsing history, with times, view counts, filters and more this tool is brilliant.  'BrowsingHistoryView' by Nir Sofer.  Find it at: 

BrowsingHistoryView is a utility that reads the history data of different Web browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Opera) and displays the browsing history of all these Web browsers in one table. The browsing history table includes the following information: Visited URL, Title, Visit Time, Visit Count, Web browser and User Profile. BrowsingHistoryView allows you to watch the browsing history of all user profiles in a running system, as well as to get the browsing history from external hard drive.
You can also export the browsing history into csv/tab-delimited/html/xml file from the user interface, or from command-line, without displaying any user interface. 
Browsing History View - from 2016!


Me?  Over the past 4 years, excluding shopping, search, banking, I've visited about 450,000 pages across some 38,000 URLs.


Data is Fun!
