Time Machine

I wasn't sure which section to post this but I figured since Time Machine is a Mac Application this would be a good place to start.

Does anyone know if by default Time Machine backs up Google Chrome browsing history when it runs? There were a few iphone accessory websites that I stumbled upon and can't seem to find them again but I know they would be in my Chrome history and I know a date range so it shouldn't be too hard but does anyone know if this is at all possible?

Yeah, it'll backup everything. That's actually a really good idea to look back that way :-)

The history log file is located at

~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/History

Make sure Chrome is not running then

I suggest that you rename the current file to History_Temp, use time machine to restore the old file, then when you are done delete the time machine restored file and rename the History_Temp file back to History.
