  • (2019-01-20) Pat Williams: This is the only backspace extension I've tried that worked on the version of Chrome I'm using-(official build) beta version 72.0.3626.64 for Mac. Since Google removed the backspace function, the lack of a dedicated backspace key has bothered me EVERY TIME I use my laptop. Thank you so much Productivity for Chrome.

  • (2018-01-11, v: Manuel Silva: Perfect. Let me suggest other ideas.
    Hi, Thanks, this works perfectly. Furthermore, I can still use "backspace" to delete the left char in text boxes. This is god because it had a "double behavior": outside text boxes is goes back in history and inside text boxes it deletes chars. I've tested other extensions and they don't have a "double behavior". For example, I would like to: a) use "Ctrl Z" to reopen a closed tab and undo text editing. b) use Left to move the cursor inside the taxt box but outside it could activate the leftwards tab; etc. thanks!

  • (2017-09-21, v: Lucas Beerekamp: Doesn't work on Mac 10.12.6
