There are several browser for Pharo. PharoCore uses one, and in PharoDev we
are using Omnibrowser, a.k.a OB.
There is ANOTHER browser called O2

That "history  feature" is part of O2, not OB.  O2 used to load in Pharo
(indeed, it was the defaul at the very beginning of Pharo 1.0). But
nowadays, its developr nor nobody  maintain it, so it doesn't load/works
correctly in Pharo 1.2 anymore.

No. You need to update O2 and make it work in Pharo 1.2  or try to add such
feature to OB.
