Most of us search for plugins and apps which help us preserve our privacy. And saving our browsing history is definitely not on the list. But on the other hand there are times when you wish you had some way to search your browser history to find that interesting article you read earlier since you can’t find it anymore. Same keywords don’t return same results either on search engines after sometime as the ranking of websites keep on getting updated.

So for times like these, has launched an application for your computer. It caches every single webpage you visit, creating your own personal search engine where you can search solely what you’ve seen in the past.


There are two ways to use the app. If you use Mac, you’ll have the option to download data onto your own mac’s hard drive, so nobody else can access it. But Windows users have to rely on cloud version of the service. Both versions aren’t risk free as they are capable of getting exposed to hackers.

You can however always disable the plug-in and delete that data you have stored any time you want. Fetching respects the incognito or private tab, and doesn’t save anything while you are browsing in that mode.
