browser Chrome 52 drops "backspace to prior page" function

Recommended Posts

I updated to Chrome 52 (32-bit) yesterday and almost instantly discovered that the "use backspace to return to prior page" did not work anymore.

 

They did this because some people have "hit backspace accidentally" and lost data that they had entered into a form.

 

We can hold the ALT key and press either the left or right arrow keys to navigate back and forth.  Clicking on the arrow tag on top left of screen works, too.   :)

Well, I was very used to it.  I recently searched for and found an extension that returns that function.  Otherwise, you have to hit two keys or use the mouse.

 

Re-enables the backspace key as a back navigation button (except when writing text). "
