Better History Viewer Extension For Chrome

I use to have an extension installed in my Chrome browser called Sexy Undo Close Tab, that allowed me to quickly recover a closed tab. The extension also served as a simple history browser for the most recent pages. I made a passing reference to this extension in one of my previous articles about Chrome extensions for managing tabs. Later, I switched to the light weight version of this extension - Sexy History Viewer Lite – by the same developer.

Chrome’s own history viewer - chrome://history is not bad either, but I often find myself using it’s smarter version chrome://history2/. The second version displays the domain along with the page title that makes locating pages easier. There are a few other extensions, mostly just shortcuts to the default Chrome history page.

Now Chrome’s history viewer is nice, but it’s not consistent in appearance with Chrome’s option pages. Better History in a new Chrome extension that fixes this.

With Better History installed, the browser’s history page sports a better look. The sidebar displays three links for browsing history of ‘Today’, ‘Yesterday’ and ‘Past 7 days’, and a search box. The wider panel on right shows the history organized by time you visited the pages.

For those looking for some sort of time period filter can use the History Calendar extension. History Calendar adds a calendar to the history page that allows you to view history by a specific date. A click and out pops a calendar. You can even view history between two specific dates. History Calendar also makes it possible to limit your searches for the pre-selected time interval.

History Calendar also includes a fancy history statistics tool that can draw pie charts of your top visited pages and graph your browsing activity.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
