The browsing history itself is stored in Internet Explorer 8. It's merely a list of websites that you visited. Perhaps you were thinking of the temporary Internet files. Anyway, here are the respective locations for the IE temp folder.

Windows Vista:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

Windows XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\

A quicker way to access the files is through Internet Explorer 8. Simply click on Tools then Internet Options. From there, select Settings under Browsing History and click on View Files.
