Because my studies make me jump from one source to another with dozens on the screen at a time the history screen isn't always the greatest help for me. 

   I am typically able to remember at least a brief phrase from the article.  At that point I do a global search on "The words I'm looking for" and voilà, it's usually in the first ten or so.

 

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Does history sync across devices?

If you have the problem of wanting to open a tabbed resource in a separate window for further examination but don't want to mess your layout up, just use 'History' and right-click into a floating window. Duplicating a tab won't pop you into a window. (Unless .... there's ANOTHER way which someone knows about!) The other nice thing about this method is that it doesn't carry the tab-link with it (e.g. you can move around the resource without impacting your layout).

Nice tip Denise, worthy of your putting it on the wiki tips page.

Court:

Yes, at least computers running Mac or Win L4. I can't answer about other (iOS) devices.

AdamB:

+1 Yes

If I come across something I want to remember for later, depending on how long I want to remember it, I might either mark it with a bookmark (for temporary things that I might want to come back to in this session), or else I'll drag it to a folder in my Favorites. If it's something very relevant for the major areas of research I tend to do, I will drag it to the folder specific to that topic. Otherwise I might drag it just to a folder for useful bits of info to come back to someday.

If I didn't happen to store a location somewhere for recall at the time, and then later I want to find it again, then yes sometimes I can use the History window to at least remind me what resource it was in, and then open that resource and Ctrl+F to find the spot if I'd jumped around in it quite a bit. But the current organization of History (without any ability to sort by resource or search within it) makes it tough to use.

Also, usually I'm able to recall a litle something about the path I took to find the information in the first place, and I can repeat that search or go back to the resource that had linked me to it, and find it again that way.
