Often time we browser an informative website and close immediately. But, when we want to recollect the website address, we fail. Hence, it’s often recommended bookmarking on Chrome Android for future reference if you want to revisit any website link.

But, if you haven’t bookmarked and closed the tab recently, then we have an option to reopen the Recent tabs. However, if you’ve visited the website long ago then we can still reopen the same website from the History tab.

These two options can be used interchangeably to access the historical website that we have visited on the page. Especially the recent tabs that also help in reopening the tab that was mistakenly closed.
