A shortcut to Chrome history

This is just a shortcut to Chrome history. When installed, it will add "History" button to your apps list (on the "New Tab" page and in the Chrome App Launcher). Click the icon and you'll open the history page. That's all this "app" does... ** Questions & Answers ** Why adding separate app to access history when it’s accessible with two clicks from the menu? -- You don’t need to, but for some of us accessing the history page right from the apps tab / crome app launcher is convenient option. Besides, there is beautiful big icon ;-) But chrome apps and extensions eat system memory, why wasting resources just for quick shortcut to the history? -- The history app 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 button (check the Chrome Task Manager if you don’t trust us -- when you click on the history icon it will start the app, open the history page and release the memory right after that) If I install the history button, is it easy to remove the app later? -- Yes, you can remove it with few clicks (just go to the apps page, find the history icon, right-click on it and select “Remove from Chrome”) How to add the history button to the main toolbar? -- To get the history shortcut added to the toolbar you’ll need to install our history button extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/history-button/kakmedkloohedkbmmgchndgichbdndng **More from the history button author** • History On/Off – disable/enable history tracking with one click: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/history-onoff/ljbpakpmiimdmblcjjhhbfabbkmcgmdp • SingleClick Cleaner – cleanup Chrome in one single click: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/singleclick-cleaner/cknijndocnnlkpenngcdcpleddlmckkm More about the History Button: https://singleclickapps.com/history-app/

A nice looking button but hidden away among the web apps so it takes 2 clicks to get to it. If you have the bookmarks bar enabled it's impossible to get to this from an open web-page.
