This history idea is based on a feature that was used in Apple's Hypercard
application. The idea would be to have a visual history frame. The frame would
be scrollable, with each page visited in the referenced window being listed,
either as a text element, or as a page capture. This history would be as
extensive as a user defined value, either 'n' or all. The page would be
accessible via the back button menu - the last item would be 'view extended
history...' or something.

familiar with hypercard to visualize.

TrailBlazer offers another alternative:

As does OmniWeb 5:

Maybe this could be added as an add-on, since adding this sort of feature would
really depend on user perception and usability.
