I've seen this question already: Full text Search of browser history, through the browser

I remember that Chrome used to do this if you go to the History view and enter a query in the search box there.

However, it's not working for me anymore. I can't find anything now!

Did Chrome stopped doing this? Am I missing something? Do I have to enable/disable something?


Hmm, they have removed it ! I'm really angered with this decision. I have raised a bug with the chromium team and opened a thread for this on product forum. I'd really appreciate if you star the bug or participate in the google groups discussion. It really does make it a worthless browser, for me this was a the most important feature.

    And guess what they did for a ridiculous reason. Check the issue comments. – Ramandeep Nanda Oct 5 '13 at 12:17
  • I tried switching from Safari to Chrome, but this one feature was a showstopper. When you need full text search through history, you really need it. Thus after my few day experiment with Chrome, I'm switching back to Safari. – Senseful Dec 25 '18 at 17:19
