Internet browsers maintain a history of your website visit activity for easy reference. The history information includes the time of your visit. When you access the history in the Google browser, the time and date of the visit is prominently displayed along with the link. Find the timestamp in your Internet browsing history for other popular browsers using the following steps.

Internet Explorer

Step 1

Click the star icon at the top of the browser to access the Favorites Center and choose the History tab.

Step 2

Choose By Date from the history drop-down. Expand the resulting folders by clicking them until you reach the URL listing you're interested in.

Right-click the URL and choose Properties from the menu. A window will open showing information including the time and date of the URL visit.

Firefox

Step 1

Click the History link at the top of the browser window and select Show All History from the resulting menu. A panel will appear showing various listings. Click the left-hand side of the date folder you desire to open it.

Step 2

Locate the URL on the right side of the window. If the date does not appear with the listing, perform the next step.

Right-click the headings bar located directly above the listings. Select Visit Date from the resulting menu. A Visit Date column heading will be added and your times and dates displayed along with the URL listings.
