I see the last action changed this from merging history and search to just enhancing it and I feel this misses the biggest point.

I see that the mockup design has magnifying glasses and also clock indicators to presumably indicate search and history references. Am I correct that actually these are merged on the same page, now?

If this is so, cool, but hopefully you finish this out. There is no need for the search and history tab. Simply make it solely the search tab with the “search Wikipedia” search box and then plant this new designed page below the search box. And have a slight scroll down (which a ton of apps do and I can give examples if needed) to be able to show the search reading history option.
