I'd like to read a question that I viewed yesterday. Unfortunately I do not remember the exact words used in the question or answers. I only know what was written in the question conceptually. I tried all the search options including advance search in SO. The only remaining option is to go through viewed questions. I can see that those questions are in a different color. But not sure how to search all of them by date.

So my question is,
Is there any way to search the questions that I previously viewed?

You could try to enter those words you remember in the "New Question" field. When you click on the body, a list of potentially related questions appears and may include the one you search. Heaven knows why this potential-duplicate search sometimes works better...

I have noticed the same thing. I tried there before asked this question in meta. Thank you. – Sujee Jun 18 '10 at 16:16

Good question, but that would involve tracking which links you clicked which I don't think SO does.

Which browser are you using?

If you're using Chrome (for example) you can click on History (Ctrl+H) and see all the links you've clicked on for the last few days. Firefox (Ctrl+Shift+H) and IE also keep a history.

Chrome in Mac. Unfortunately the history was already cleared. Anyway thank you @ChrisF. – Sujee Jun 18 '10 at 16:14
Of course you can always ask the ever-helpful folks at NSA for your browsing history :P – Tobias Kienzler Feb 27 '14 at 7:06
