"View your latest Web searches"

Overview

MyLastSearch is a utility that performs an active scan of both the history and the cache records for a number of web browsers installed on the Windows system. This is done in order to collect the online searches that have been run on the desktop and collect them in a single useful application.

The software is capable of capturing searches from several popular web browsers from a number of search engines like Google and Yahoo. This can present a fairly complete picture of the recent searches that one or more users have performed while the owner of the computer has been in attendance and when they were away from their computer too.

Newer web browsers now include incognito modes which attempt to hide what searches and other activity was conducted. There is also an encrypted Google search option. Depending on the web browser, often searches run while in incognito mode may not be recorded in the cache or history records and therefore will not always show up in the MyLastSearch app.

With the search results that do show up, the information displayed will include the search text, the search engine, the date and time of the search, whether the search was for general purposes, image specific, video specific, etc., the web browser searched on, and the URL located.

Installation

MyLastSearch app is a portable one and so it does not need to be installed.

There was no adware, toolbars, spyware or malware included in the file archive.

MyLastSearch requires Windows

Interface

The interface is fairly basic but quick to understand too. It has a menu system with top-level menu options for File, Edit, View, Options, and Help. There is a small toolbar row of buttons below the menu to access some key functions a little faster.

The main display shows the recent searches. There are columns display the most recent search text, the search engine, search type, search time, web browser, the number of hits, and the URL. The number of listed searches is also shown in the footer.
