Your bookmarks are history! Stop wasting time managing bookmarks and sifting through history menus trying to guess when you viewed a Web site. Herodotus makes it easy to find Web pages you've viewed and lost track of. With Herodotus you can search the history and bookmarks of many popular Web browsers by title, address, or content. Herodotus now also has the ability to archive your history so that you are no longer limited to the date range of your browser.

What's New
Version 1.3: A new Archive option stores browser history entries to a database even after your browser has forgotten them. Title and date information are automatically updated over time should they change. The database can be set to remember your history for 1 month, 6 months, or 1 year. Startup time has been dramatically reduced and a startup progress bar is now in place. Opening new search windows happens instantly instead of after a long pause. The Reload button is also accompanied by a progress bar. Herodotus now soft highlights sites that share the same domain as the selected Web site. Mozilla based browsers now include Date and Title information. Camino 0.8 bookmarks can now be imported. Dates are now shown for bookmarks when available. The date is that of your last visit to the site. Dates are much more accurate for all browsers. Herodotus now finds Mozilla based browser's history and bookmark files even more reliably. You can now open history and bookmark files manually. This is useful if Herodotus can't find the file in it's default location or if you'd like to open files from another user's folder or from across the network on another computer. The "Both" search option has been changed to "Either" and a true "Both" option has been added. Results returned for "Both" will contain the search phrase in both the title and address. Results returned for "Either" may contain the search phrase in either the title or address. HTML escape sequences are now removed from URLs and titles that contain them. Moved the cache folder from username/Preferences to username/Caches. All refferences to Firebird have been changed to Firefox.

I really like this app, but I think the author should add a simple password protect upon launch, since it contains so much information about browsing history, for people who share computers.

Very nice update to version 1.1. Love the content and bookmark search features -- the content search in particular has been extremely useful - though I think there may be a date bug in safari. Otherwise, very handy app.

Herodotus is great. A handy mini-google to search through my history files. Easy. Simple. Fast.
