What is “Journeys” in chrome?

Google Chrome recently added a new way to organize browsing history. The new feature is called “Journeys.”

In the traditional format, your history page lists all the pages you visited chronologically. The most recent page appears at the top of the list. What if you want to group them as a session? For example, you researched for hotels to stay in during an upcoming trip. Chrome can group these websites and show them as a “Journey.”

I hope you found this tutorial useful. If you have any questions, ask them in the comments section below, and I will answer them.

    Your info page does not explain at all how to disable (and remove) the Journeys clickon when going to History. I also viewed the video; as a tutorial, it is useless and was not designed to assist anyone who is not extremely computer savvy. (In that regard it’s similar to Google’s site designers, who posts a myriad of totally useless instruction pages on various topics).

    Sadly, turning it off does nothing. If you turn it on you’ll see everything that you’ve done still. It still keeps track even when it’s “off”. And they need to add a “delete all” button to make it easier to clean or at the very least, add it to the clear history options.

    1. Well, Journeys is just a way of organizing your browsing history. If you do not want it to track you, you’ll need to disable history completely. If you do that, Journey’s isn’t an issue at all.
