    This is a silly small thing but I can't figure out how to change it and it's really bugging me.

    I'm using Chrome for Mac, and in the History tab at the top, it comes up with my "most visited" pages. I'd like to be able to change them just because I'm picky like that and because they're chosen a bit weirdly so it's not very useful (same website appears twice, etc).

    I've tried editing the most visited pages you get in the new tab screen, but it doesn't seem to change the ones that appear in the History tab.

    You could just delete your entire history and next time you want to look at porn use Chromes 'incognito mode'

    I don't want to delete my entire browsing history, I just want to edit the pages that appear in the most visited section. So I can put useful stuff there, not so I can look at porn :rolleyes:

    Put your cursor over the one you want to remove, hold it there, and you should see a cross appear. Click it.

    I use Chrome for Mac too, but it's still in beta stages so some functionality won't be there. They've only recently added the Bookmark Manager. Just be patient and it'll probably arrive. It's a great browser though, the best that I've used so far!

    Delete the ones you don't want to appear and then pin the pages you want on there. Just hold your mouse over the pane and a little extension should appear at the top giving you the option to remove and pin.
