Browser History Analysis

Download and analyze your Chrome browsing history.

Browser History Analysis

Google offers you the ability to download your data at takeout.google.com. That's great, but frankly, they make it pretty inaccessible: the file it exports is JSON data. Luckily, you can read in that file with Parabola and analyze the results.

This example was built by one of our users and allows you to read in your browsing history and gives you a ton of really interesting insights.

Working with Google data

In order to get the data you need to do this analyis, head over to takeout.google.com and download your Chrome history. We recommend you deselect everything else for now to speed up the process.

Working with this flow

This flow might look a little scary as it's doing a lot! But, to get started with this flow, you only need to follow these two steps (after downloading your data from Google!):

  1. Replace the JSON file in the first step of the flow with your browser history file from takeout.google.com. Google names the file BrowserHistory.json.

  2. Authenticate Google Sheets (the very last step in the flow) to allow you to save the insights to a Google Sheet.

Below is an example analysis from this flow, which lists common pairings of websites you visit, e.g. Mixpanel + Parabola or Google + Linkedin.
