Linux doesn't have a registry. Individual applications may have their own config files, sometimes global and usually located in /etc, and sometimes located in a user's home dir, and sometimes in both places. Any sort of per-user saved settings will almost always be in the user's home dir, like .ssh for ssh/scp/sftp, .mozilla for Mozilla, .openoffice for OpenOffice, etc.

I don't know of any tools designed for that purpose. As mentioned, each application store things like URL's or file browsed in its own application specific way. For example, Openoffice retains a history of files accessed in:

.openoffice/user/config/registry/instance/org/openoffice/Office/Common.xml
.openoffice/user/config/registry/instance/org/openoffice/Office/Views.xml

/etc is the main place for configuration option files of programs. Also per user configurations are in your home ( ~username ) directory. Every program has its own configuration generally. And generally you can choose your instalation directory instead of default one, in that case the configuration files are generally in the conf/ directory of the installation directory ( e.g. /home/apache/conf , i installed apache in /home/apache directory ).
