This simple extension allows you to use the backspace key to go back one page in your browser history (when not typing in some input field), or shift+backspace to go forward. The extension is intended for Linux users (as Chrome for Linux does not have this feature), but it should not break the built-in backspace navigation on Windows/Mac.
- (2016-03-19) Allan Laal: goes back 2 pages for every keypress. unusable :(
- (2014-08-09) Samuele R.: Just works.
- (2014-03-16) Michael Gebetsroither: Works really good on linux, but breaks backspace navigation on chromebooks.
- (2013-09-14) Kevin Sar: It's very spotty for me. It usually only works if I'm on a page that has already been loaded and only works if I navigate to a new page first. so if I press back once and then back again it won't work.
