  • (2016-08-13) xxx Zethian: Without a backspace=back extension I'd have reverted back to FireFox in a heartbeat. The only issue is (and also with all other extensions for Chrome that re-add this feature) is that it doesn't work on YouTube for me for some reason. No idea why. It works everywhere else though so it's still better than switching browsers.
