Overview

Go Back There

Go Back There is a handy extension to go back to an article or web page that you recently visited on a website. To access the extension, just click on the icon in the toolbar, and the popup will display the recent history for the site you are currently on. To open link in a new tab, hold shift and then click. If you are a power user, then type > + Enter in the omni-box, and search away. The extension currently is limited to searching history upto 4 weeks back in order to keep it speedy. There is an additional feature in the Option menu to configure relative URLs to work with multiple sites. This is something thats probably useful for a developer or a QA who is testing multiple test instances of a website. Future plans are to increase the history time period by adding a cache. Open to suggestions. The code is open source, and is available at https://github.com/kavanpuranik/go-back-there

So cool! Really useful and easy to use. Helps when you can "almost" remember the page you're looking for.
