Windows 7: IE8 / IE9 History in Site Visited order ?

IE8 / IE9 History in Site Visited order ?

Hi there
Is it possible in IE8 / IE9 to make the History page show sites in LAST VISITED order. I.e the site you just visited is AT THE TOP of say todays date.

The default alphabetical method IMO is totally useless if you've visited a lot of sites and you want to go back to one you've forgotten the name of but you remember it was probably for example in the last 5 or 6 sites visited.

I can get the info from a server log but I should be able to get it directly in the history page in the browser.

The history window has a "view by" drop list at the top and one of the choices is "order visited" which does that very thing :)

you last visited:
My "you last visited" is always stuck either at 1 hour, 4 hours or 12 hours. I refreshed the page, logged off/on, left for a few hours and even turned off PC and it still says 1, 4 or 12 hours ago at such a time.
