Backspace gone from Chrome
« on: September 05, 2016, 08:29:33 am »

I don't know what they were thinking, but you can no longer "back up" to a previous page in Chrome by using the backspace.  You're supposed to use Alt + Left Arrow (which requires both hands).

I tried to adapt to it, but after a week I gave up and started using MS Edge.

I've been expecting an outcry, but apparently I'm the only person who used backspace as the Creators intended it.

Beware of edge. It likes to reload everything. So if you got to a page that would force you to kill the browser from task manage to get out of it will happily keep reloading it until you kill your internet connection.

Other than that Edge is great. When it works. Which it mostly doesn't.

Still using Firefox here. Better than edge and kinder on the laptop's batteries than Chrome.

The extension mentioned by Awesome Donkey works great. I would have bailed on Chrome without that extension (written by google by the way).
