How to View and Delete Browsing History on Safari

How to View and Delete Browsing History on Safari. Whenever you view a Web page, Safari automatically saves a record of its name and location in the Browsing History folder. This can be a helpful feature when you want to return to a Web page that you have previously viewed. It can also be problematic in that it allows other users of your computer to view every Web page that you have visited. Because of this, Safari is set up to make it easy for you to either view or delete your browsing history whenever you want.
