           Summary: History page should reflect period of time individual
                    pages were open
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh Intel
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P4
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: a.k.a.unique.ish at gmail.com

Okay, I have feature request for the interface that has just now become of
tantamount importance to me. After 3 hours of browsing doing research, opening
tabs to the side for later, multiple windows, etc., I had to close the
clamshell lid of my MacBook Pro, and switch rooms. Well, my laptop hated some
part of that, because when I reopened the lid, the screen stayed dark and the
fans revved to 100%. I don't know if Safari/webkit caused it, but I was forced
to do a hard reboot. So I lost all my open windows, and the webpages buried in
mounds of history.

Now, I realize that you've probably received about a bazillion requests to
implement session saving in Safari/Webkit. I'm not looking for that. What I
want to see is something that would be complementary to that, and is something
that no other browser that I know of has:

I want to see the history section of the bookmarks page to reflect and be able
to sort the results by the TIME spent with any given page in any tab open. The
problem with the history page as it is now with tabbed browsing, is that it's
completely linear. No matter what tab you're in you have the same history to
refer back to. 

So in a case like mine where I had a window set aside for later, or perhaps a
lengthy article, etc., I have no easy way of finding it again unless it's close
to the top of the pile. If a user could track in the history recent pages as
well as length of time spent at pages, you could find both your recent pages
and your most important pages VERY easily. It would have saved my life, and I
think it would do a world of good to include a relatively uncomplicated feature
in the final release. Just my two cents.
