How to View and Delete Browsing History on SeaMonkey

by Contributor

Remembering Web sites you visited can be difficult when you go to many of them every day. In addition, a Web history is also helpful when you check the same pages frequently but don't include them in your bookmarks. Viewing and deleting your browsing history lets you cut down on files in your Internet folders.

Install the SeaMonkey Application Suite

Pull up the SeaMonkey home page (see Resources below).

Close any programs you have running including virus protection.

Choose the download you want based on the operating system you are running on your computer.

Read the licensing agreement and 'Accept' to continue installation.

Select which version of SeaMonkey application suite you would like. You can choose to install just the browser or you can get the complete suite which includes email and newsgroup managers, among other features.

Manage Your Browsing History on SeaMonkey

Click the arrow on the address bar to access the browsing history and see recently viewed Web pages.

Use the toolbar to search through your browsing history. You can choose to view by Web site name or by when you visited the site. You can also sort your browsing history.
