Well I, and many others, thought that this was missing, since there's no longer an arrow to click on in the search field, make that the "omnibar." But it turns out that there's an easy way to get to your search history. Just click in the omnibar, or press Command-L, and press the spacebar. The Recent Searches menu will display, along with the options to change search engines.

There doesn't appear to be a need for the Command-L. Simply typing a space reveals the list.

You have to have the omnibar bar highlighted. If not, pressing the space bar will scroll the page down. Command-L gets you to the omnibar if you are not already there.

I was wondering how to see the search list. I missed that!

If the address bar is empty, you can also just click on the magnifying glass icon.
