Searching through your browser history!

At first, when looking at Safari's history menu, there is no obvious way to search the history. I already mentioned, however, that it is possible to access the history through the bookmarks section (by clicking on the open book at the left of the bookmark bar). What is great is that this section has a search bar that lets you search through your bookmarks. But, what is even better is that it will also let you search through the history. It is a quick and convenient way of finding a website you already visited.

Where you find it:

The search bar that lets you search through the history and bookmarks:

I use that feature all the time.

It is much easier to type the name of the video I saw a few hours ago rather than to find it manually.

Ive found a slightly easier way

all you need to do (in leopard) is go to the help menu and search there. the only prob is that it cuts off part of the title.

there's also a way to browse thru the history of sites visited during a session: doubleclick and hold down mouse button on the 'back button' (the one with the back arrow "<") and the session's history will be displayed.

Oh yes, when I say "doubleclick and hold down mouse button", it means to hold down mouse button on the second click of the doubleclick. then the session's history will be displayed and you can move the cursor over the site you want to get back to.
