What is Recent Searches?
Recent Searches is an Edge add-on that adds an item to your right-click menu. It allows you to easily insert recently searched terms into your current text box, improving your search experience. The extension is keyboard accessible and designed to be light on resources. It pulls your past searches from your browser's history and only inspects the last 48 hours of history for performance reasons.
Motivation: How many times have you searched for someone on one search engine, were dissatisfied and wanted to search for the same thing in another search engine?
Simply right click on any search box and click "Recent Searches" and it will pull recent searches that you performed within the last 2 days and allow you to paste it with just one click.
Features: This extension is pretty simple and only does one thing. And it's completely keyboard accessible for the keyboard savvy. Just press Up/Down/Enter/Escape to control which text gets inserted!
This extension is designed to be light on resources. It doesn't listen to any events and only reacts when the context menu option is selected.
Data Source: Your past searches is only pulled from the URLs in your browser's history. If you clear your history, your past searches will be inaccessible. This extension does not pull your past searches from what you actually type into search fields because that would be much more complex and would degrade your browser's performance. That's why it will only inspect the last 48 hours of your browser's history as a performance trade off.
Recent Searches is relatively safe to use as it requires very minimum permissions.
