Historian was a proof of concept exercise to redesign the browser's history page for faster recall.

Redesigned Google Chrome history page

The focus was on improving search by providing information of events and interactions that occured surrounding a page's visit. Media-heavy webpages were represented visually through thumbnails. Historian’s visual design focused on presenting the increased content without overwhelming the user.

The timeline is a key piece of the redesign, providing a sequential overview of the entire browsing history and faster access to inter-site movement.
