Chrome-Stats extension

This is a simple lightweight extension that adds a shortcut button to your browser for quick access to your history. It either opens a new tab, or switches to the history tab if you already have it open in another tab.

You could nearly accomplish the same thing if you made a bookmark, but this assures you won't open multiple tabs.
