Journeys will categorize your search history by topic.

All you need to do is enter a keyword into the new Journeys search bar in your Chrome account.

All of your searches related to that keyword should appear.

There is also a “Resume Your Search” button which will take you to the exact links you previously clicked on.

This is useful if you want to access a site that you visited a few weeks ago, but can’t remember the specific address.

It’s not very useful if you share a computer with someone and you’re worried that they’ll see your specific searches.

The feature is not tied to your Google account and will simply show you the sites you have visited on that specific device.

The Journeys page will display the sites you spent the most time on.

It will also provide suggestions for sites you might like based on what you searched for.

You will be able to delete specific sites from Journeys and if you clear your search history often enough, most sites will not show up.

It also won’t show sites you’ve visited on a private browser.

If you’re worried, you can disable the feature altogether.

Journey’s is now available on the desktop version of Chrome in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese and Turkish.

You may need to update Chrome to see the Journeys feature.

Google will promote Journeys when you type in a keyword you search often or you can visit the Chrome History Journey page.

Go to your settings and click on “Search History” and it should appear.

Yana Yushkina, product manager for the Chrome team, said in a statement: “The journeys will even take into account your interactions with a site to bring the most relevant information to the fore, while giving you useful suggestions on related topics. searches you might want to try next.”
