Questions

How is iBar different to the omnibar in Chrome?

Here are some of the notable differences:

How does iBar know which websites I visited?

You browser keeps a database of the URLs that you visit. iBar reads from that database. It doesn't create additional records. If you delete an item from your browser history it will also disappear from iBar.

How far back in time can iBar go?

Since iBar reads from the history data on your browser (and doesn't keep it's own data), this depends on how long your browser keeps history data. At the moment, Google Chrome, keeps history data for 90 days.

Does iBar work with Firefox or Safari?

At this point, iBar supports the Chromium-based browsers: Chrome, Brave, Opera and Vivaldi. Next on the roadmap are Firefox and Safari.

Is iBar available on Windows or Linux?

We want to nail the app for macOS first. Once we do this, we can apply our learnings to build the Windows and Linux versions.
