As soon as you start the application, you will be provided with two options. You can either choose to scan your PC to collect internet history or you can go for the second option in which the app will browse the data stored in a history file. To start scanning your PC for the web browser history, simply click on the green colored graphic button. By doing so, the software will scan all the installed browsers and the results would be stored to a file which can be opened later (on any PC) using the “Browser data stored in a file” button. At the end of the scanning process, the app would display the history of all browsers collectively in the form a list.

By default, the URLs in the list are sorted according to the date and time in which you had accessed them. Plus, each of the URL is listed along with a small icon of the browser in which the particular page was originally accessed in. Now, simply click on any entry, and the software would display its full title, complete URL, date and time you last visited it, and the number of times it’s been visited, at the bottom part of the interface. Moreover, you can easily open the entry in your default browser directly from the software’s interface. Just double-click on the link or select it and then click on ‘Open’ button to launch that page in the default browser.

At the top of the interface, you’ll find a search field, which enables the users to search for a particular website from the entire list of loaded links, by simply typing a part of its title or URL in the search box. For example, type “Facebook” in the search field and the software will display the history of all your Facebook visits. Lastly, whenever you close the program, the tool would save the entire file in its directory in the format: COMPUTERNAME_USERNAME.ihd. You can always copy this file and open it on another PC or on the same PC at a later time using this software.

No other options or settings have been included in the software, making it extremely easy and simple to use. However, the program does lack some useful features. For instance, you cannot filter the results by browser, and also there is no option to delete the entries from the browsing history or to export your browsing history. Despite these few missing features, MiTeC Internet History Browser is undoubtedly a great program for all those people who uses more than one browsers and wants to preserve their browsing history across all the browsers.

MiTeC Internet History Browser software runs on both 32-bit as well as 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
