I moved to a new Mac using Migration Assistant and everything worked perfectly until I realized that I had no browsing history in Chrome (my bookmarks and auto-completion info transfered ok).

So I would like to know if there is a way I can manually transfer my history to the new Mac.

I would think that Chrome's history is stored in /Users/<user>/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default. Try copying that folder from your original Mac to the new Mac. Just make sure you back up the version of the folder on the new Mac just in case something goes wrong.

Isn't Application Support supposed to be copied when using Migration Assistant? – Daniel Beck Oct 5 '10 at 11:46
I think so, but just in case it didn't work properly it wouldn't hurt to try again. The history should be stored there... – Vervious Oct 7 '10 at 4:19

Easiest way is to sign in to Chrome with a Google account, then Google keeps settings, bookmarks, history etc in the cloud.
