Description

19 years ago
The number of times a page has been visited is not currently stored in history.
The visit count could be very useful in URL autocomplete to determine the best
URL match when typing into the URL bar.

I think 4.x autocomplete just uses the first entry in the history.  This is
_very_ bad.   A better system is to use both URLs in the history and your
bookmarks.   History URLs should be ranked somehow.   It is logical to either
rank them by either number of visits, or by last visit date.   I vote for number
of visits - you want autocomplete to guess URLs you visit most frequently.
Also see my comments in bug # 10957 - I would like to see autocomplete
implemented as a combination of IE5's autocomplete and Netscape 4's
autocomplete, and ranking URLs like sugested here would be an integral part of
this.

Just to clarify: this bug refers to the global history, not the history built
into the foward/back buttons.
