Having looked for something in my browser history last night I noticed I visit an average of about 200 webpages per day and I was wondering how many of these are SO. Any way to find out the total number of questions I have viewed (either total or unique)?

Some say the hidden view counter is not related to one's account. But if the visits are recorded, then it would be nice to show that! Like "You've visited this page ... times, first time on ..." – Arjan Dec 13 '11 at 20:58
This seems like it would be a pretty expensive thing to track...I know I look at a few hundred SO pages per day and I'm less active than many others. – JNK Dec 13 '11 at 21:04
You can get a pretty good idea from your per-site browser history. – Robert Harvey Dec 13 '11 at 21:31
If in doubt, too freaking many. – Time Traveling Bobby Dec 13 '11 at 22:22

No, such thing is not tracked on the servers as far as I know. I strongly believe they just have counter how many people visited particular question, but not who visited.

That said, you'll have to resort to your browser.. Chrome allows you to search your history so here is a shortcut to display all pages you visited:

I guess this is confirmed by Nick's statement about not tracking individual page views in Add a “recently viewed” tab in the user account page. – Arjan Dec 17 '11 at 10:25
Yes indeed.. thanks for pointing this out! :) – Shadow Wizard Dec 17 '11 at 21:08
