Browser history and search on the browser address bar?

I'm probably opening too many different threads. Sorry about that, it's just that I have been using my Kobo for a while and I'm really curious about how it works.

Since the web browser does not store any browsing history, I was wondering if there's any way to store the addresses of the websites visited on a plain text file? Probably the browser must tell on its output the websites that are being visited? If so, it would be easy to redirect that output to a .txt file, and then open it with the web browser. One could even use some shell magic to convert those addresses into links in order to make a static HTML history page. I was wondering if any of you has made any research into this.

I am also looking for a way to do DuckDuckGo searches on the address bar.

What I have found so far is that, if you type something like "foo" on the address bar, the browser tries to visit "http://foo/". I was wondering that in this case one could redirect those addresses that lack a .com, .org, etc. so that they are turned into something like this: "https://duckduckgo.com/?q=foo".

These are just some really early ideas, but maybe I could find something to use them
