Iconic History [shan-huang.com] by Carnegie Mellon University interaction design student Shan Huang is as simple as it is beautifully revealing.

The Chrome browser plugin resulted as an accidental discovery while developing a quite sophisticated 3D webpage bookshelf for a particular course work assignment. It fetches the according favicon for each URL that was visited, and compiles all icons into a huge tapestry, in a sequence that is identical to the historical access order. As each icon is still linked to the original URL, one is able to return to the original website.
