by Barbara J. Feldman on July 1, 2008

Although the history functions of Firefox and Internet Explorer are not perfect, they do offer some settings to allow customization.

Internet Explorer also lets you set the days history is kept, and how much disk space is allocated to history. For more details on how to change these options, read CNET’s Worker’s Edge.
