Since Microsoft has now improved the search history feature significantly, I see no reason to continue the development of My Bing History.

New product: My Bing History

I am happy to announce that I have just released a new product.
I have considered switching to the Bing search engine for quite some time, but I wanted a feature to save the search history.
The Bing search engine by Microsoft has a so-called “Save & Share” feature, to log all your searches. However it does not work very well yet.
– On all my machines (except for one Windows XP in a Virtual Machine), the save to skydrive feature simply does not work.
– You have to manually tell it to save each search in the history.

Therefore, I decided to create my own firefox plugin, to log all searches. The product is called My Bing History, and saves all your search history automatically, including the links you click in search results. Then at any time you can with a single press on a button, view all your previous search history. Here you can of course filter the history by web, image, video, shopping or news searches.

This plugin is very useful when you know that a few months ago, you found something helpful, but you do not remember where it was. You look it up in the search history, and the problem is solved.
It is a very simple and easy to use plugin. Of course it respects Private Browsing, meaning that it does not save history when in “Private browsing” mode.

The plugin is currently in beta, but seems to work very well. Although a few features are still to come:
– Import/Export
– Synchronization of search history on multiple computers.

So if you use the Bing search engine, I would recommend this addon. You never know when you need to look up something in the history.
