Launcher for Chrome.
iBar is like Spotlight but for the web — jump to any page in your browser history in a couple of keystrokes.
Visit recent pages.
Jump to any page from your browser history usually goes 3 months back. Type just the beginning of words and even skip spaces — iBar can handle it.
Search within specific websites.
Similar to the omnibar in Chrome, you can select a website that has its own search and press tab to search there.
Paste URLs without switching context.
When you write text an article, an email, etc. and you want to insert a URL of a page you have visited, you can activate iBar using the global hotkey, find the page, and hit cmd-c to copy its URL.
Gets better over time / coming soon.
As we use iBar, we come up with a lot of ideas on how to make it more useful. These are some of them.
reimplement the app in rust or swift
add a badge on matches that are also bookmarks
exclude matches, search within a date range, etc
search with selection
use the selected text as the search query
find the same match under different names
A tool you can trust.
iBar reads from but never writes to the history data that Chrome keeps on your Mac. It does not use the internet except to check for updates.
