How to Export Google Chrome History

As you know, Google Chrome is a rather minimalist and bare-bone browser. For example, if you want to export and backup Chrome history to a txt or html file, you have to know that there is no easy way to achieve this result as there is not option for this. I have browsed the Internet rather extensively and, apart from a difficult trick available on Google Suport Forum which involves the use of a software called SQlite, the situation is quite hopeless! There are different reasons why a user would need the Internet history available on the Google browser. The first one is that such a user needs to put this data on a USB flash drive and use it on another computer or on another Google Chrome. Other times instead, the need to have a history log containing the past searches is more practical. In fact, the same user would like to see what kind of websites and blogs he surfed on a tidy list, an office document (to make comparisons, for example) or on a more ordered way. So, it is a pity that the Google Chrome Team didn’t add such a wonderful feature which , I am more then sure, would make a lot of “Chromers” a lot happier. On my side, I have found out a couple of solutions which might be on some interest to the casual user.

Is Google Chrome spying all of us?

So, Google Chrome is here. It is fast, minimalist and nice but, without you knowing, could hide something suspicious. As a matter of fact, lately in the Internet there has been a piece of news, that if true, could change the way you look at Chrome forever. An italian blog has recently tested Chrome by using a program called SilkPerformer. During such a test a web address was typed in Chrome. At this point the program started recording a weird activity. A lot of requests were sent through the Internet, from Chrome to this address: Such requests were sent without the user pressing Enter! For many people such an activity reminds the one which has to do with keyloggers! Keyloggers are malicious programs which record everything you type on your keyboard in order to save precious information about your privacy. Another thing I am curious about is this: is all this data sent through the Web in an encrypted mode or it is visible to everybody? Furthermore, it looks like Chrome sends infos about what you type to Yahoo. com and which are two famous search engines…but nothing is sent to Live Search. This is very weird to say the least, since Live Search is owned by Microsoft and doesn’t have any commercial agreement with Google. Waiting for Google to clarify these points…sorry guys to spoil all the excitements about the new G software.
YES, GOOGLE IS SPYING EVERYONE ! That’s how they have a stock priced $500 on NYSE ! They spy everyone and they want to totally spy everyone through their dumb browser which sends everything you do to them. I guess Google is even worst than Microsoft.
