    This is all browser specific. You will need to research browsers and see how they keep history. I don't think there is any library to do that.

    I already answered that. Please check my previous answer. You need to code it yourself. For example, Firefox should keep that as a file o as a group of file. I don't think it keeps them registry since Firefox also works on the platforms other than Windows. Then to access these data, you need to parse and process those history files. I don't know details, this is why i said you need to research on that.

    As far as i understood what you said, my answer is:

    I think all browsers has some kind of history functionality. (For example, Firefox has History menu and it lists latest visited urls there.) You just need to find how they keep that on computer and try to reach it with Java.
