OmniHistoryPlus - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot

Overview

Search your entire browser history from the Omnibar. Hit 'f' followed by a tab or space to activate this feature, then just search!

This extension allows you to search your full browser history, rather than what the browser usually trims it down to. The browser does have access to your entire browse history, it just chooses not to show it, often prioritising the wrong results, or adding suggested search terms just when you don't need them. To activate OmniHistoryPlus, go to the omnibar & simply type 'f' followed by a tab or space, then type what you want to search for. Results are displayed in the omnibar, but you'll find they go beyond what it normally displays, letting to get to the results you want! Behind the scenes, this extension isn't doing anything fancy.. it's calling Chrome's native APIs to search your full browser history, but it'll not end up adding anything else, like search suggestions, open tabs, or bookmarks, which should give you what you're looking for. OmniHistoryPlus is a great alternative to Fauxbar, which unfortunately didn't survive the move to Manifest v3 & removal of WebSQL. Fauxbar did an excellent job of surfacing your browse history, and OmniHistoryPlus does the same, so give this replacement a go!

Thanks for recreating Fauxbar for newer Chrome versions. Impressive how little code is required for the basic functionality, Sadly I'm always under the notion of the interface should change to my needs and I shouldn't change my habits (too much) So with the now fully realized deprecation of Fauxbar (websql + manifest v3) I'm switching back to Firefox But keep up the good work, the chrome omnibar is so bad, this extension makes it better :)

Thanks for the review Asaf, much appreciated. I'm setting up a small crowdfunding campaign to see how much interest there is in a 'new tab' page where you can search from. I'll soon update the extension to include a link to the campaign if you're interested.

Hi Developer, Thanks for taking the baton from Fauxbar. One suggestion would be if you could give an option to actually add a search bar like the fauxbar did. That would really help instead of typing f + tab for every search

Thanks Nithish, it's something I may be able to add in the future, or someone else can, since it's an Open Source project on GitHub :) Since Fauxbar stopped working, I've adjusted my habits slightly & primarily use the standard search bar, and if it doesn't find what I know is there, I'll switch to OmniHistoryPlus (using 'f') to extend my search. It's works pretty well, but I agree it'd be nice to have the option to override the new tab page with a search bar that works just like Fauxbar did.
