Google Chrome is by far one of the most used browsers out there, and there’s not even worth debating that, as numbers speak for themselves.

Sure, some of us use Opera, Brave, Firefox, or Edge, but Chrome has remained a user favorite throughout the years, even though it’s not at all a light app when it comes to resource usage.

Google spends a lot of time and resources constantly perfecting everyone’s go-to browser, so new features and fixes are always cooking and on the way.

We can’t always tab every website we visit, so having neat features such as browser history is really helpful when you’re trying to go back to the same pages.

But what if we tell you there’s an even better way to group up your searches and find all you need a lot faster and better arranged?

Yes, you guessed it. We’re actually talking about the Journeys feature for Chrome, which you can find by accessing the History page.

What is Journeys in Google Chrome?

We all know by now that finding stuff on the internet is pretty easy. That being said, what’s hard is finding that exact web page you knew you were reading last week.

And, even though you know what it was about, no matter how hard you try or how much time you spend, you just can’t find it in your history or even a regular search. 

This is where the Journeys feature comes into play. When you type in a word from a previous research session, Journeys asks if you want to resume your research and takes you back to where you left off. 

It will also show you a list of relevant sites you have already visited. sites you have spent more time interacting with are bumped up the list. How handy is that?

However, if you feel like you have little use for this neat little software help, you can always turn it off and we’re about to show you how to do so.
