Title: Data processing system and method for internet browser history generation

Abstract: A data processing system and method for generating browsing histories during a worldwide web browsing session is implemented. As web pages are visited, they are added to the browsing history so generated which is organized in inverse chronological order. Each web page is further grouped with the server which provided the web page in order to facilitate subsequent random access to web pages that have been previously visited. Each visited web page, and each server associated therewith, appears in the history only once. In this way, the browsing history remains manageable, and user access to previously visited websites is simplified.
