browseback allows you to visually see and search past Web pages that you've visited in your browser. It stores a PDF of every Web page visited and makes the pages accessible through an interface that allows the user to browse thumbnails of the pages. This visual Web history can also be searched by content, making it possible to retrieve visited Web pages with a few keywords.

Example use: Browse the Web like normal for the next week, and at the end of the week search for "MacUpdate." It'll bring up thumbnails of every webpage that you've visited that has linked to mentioned MacUpdate.

Developer seemed to erase all existence of Browseback on their web site. I am going to assume that they are no longer developing BrowseBack.

Though it hasn't been updated in about 3½ years.

Crashes on startup for me in Leopard on two different Macs every time. Both were clean installs too. I guess it's not very Leopard compatible yet.

I tried a demo of this app and was pleased to get it with the MacUpdate Bundle recently. Easy to use, stable, and with a single click can save the page as a pdf, print it, present it in an e-mail, or take you back to the site. For my needs this is a perfect application done well although, arguably, a bit pricey.

I hope you have a 10k RPM hard drive, lots of RAM, and a really pressing need to see a visual timeline of your websurfing, because otherwise this program is a big disappointment. It's slow, takes up a lot of space on your drive, and has a confusing UI. I could see this as a great tool for admins if it had some sort of VPN tools built in, because then you could visually monitor web surfing on a host of computers, and that would be useful for corporate and school IT departments. For the average user, however, I simply don't see the purpose. Just use your history menu!

As others have said, browseback is a good idea coupled with extremely poor execution. Performance is slow and stuttery, the full-screen UI routinely pops up when it is not wanted (like when attempting to use the Preferences window), the application provides no facility to hide the dock icon even though it is designed to run as a background service, and although the background color is adjustable, the color of the text displayed on that background is not.

Needs a "Flush all from History" or "Flush X period from history".

Very interesting concept but extremely flawed execution for the moment. This application is meant to be invoked via cmd-f12 but it shows up in the dock. When brought to the foreground the app frequently grinds for several seconds (on a dual 2.5 ghz) and scrubbing over the thumbnails is anything but smooth. You can't tab to get to the search box and the app freezes for a few seconds again when you hit x in the search box to remove the search term. In addition, it swiftly becomes a memory hog (After indexing my history it was at 434MB. I quit it and reopened and it was soon back to 230+).
