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.”
