    Is there an app or a way to extend the kept history file longer than it is? Say, 14 days?

    Thanks

    Hmmmm...

    It looks like you can set it using the Terminal. Open your Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities folder) then type:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.safari HistoryAgeInDaysLimit 14
    ...and hit return. Change the number on the end to whatever number of days you like.

    I say it looks like you can do it that way because I'd have to wait 15 days to be certain! ;-)

    Good luck
