Image from store Backspace Should Go Back
Description from store Restores the backspace key as a back navigation button. Restores the backspace key as a back navigation button (except when writing text). Go back with the backspace button! This extension restores the backspace key as a back navigation button except if you're writing text. - The two lists of URLs in the options now accept '*' as a wildcard for the end potion of any path. For example, entering 'https://www.example.com/*'; will match any "https" page on www.example.com (including https://www.example.com/ itself), and 'https://www.example.com/some/path/*'; will match any page within that path on that site. Before Chrome 52, the backspace key navigated back (if you weren't writing text). Many people lost their progress while working online by accidentally pressing backspace and leaving a page -- so we removed the feature from Chrome, and created this extension for those who prefer the old behavior. This extension can't restore backspace on certain special pages, for example any of the "chrome://" pages such as Settings or Extensions. Just install it and you can use your backspace button like before.

  • (2020-07-31) Michael Lutynski: I found this extension using network bandwidth and I'm wondering "why??". All this is supposed to do is to go back. I found this by pressing Shift-Esc to get to the Chrome task manager and sorting by network. There I saw the extension using the network. Very strange! So goodbye.
