"Chrome Backspace Key - get it back!"

The latest version of Chrome has changed the behavior of the Backspace Key. Since nearly year dot using the Backspace Key has taken you back a page in most browsers.

Lots of people are used to this - I'm one of them.

So I wasn't very impressed where Google have changed this 'back' function to ALT + Left Arrow Key.

Apparently using Backspace has been causing some people problems as they use it by accident while typing in a form and end up losing all their data. Not something that I've every done. But they went ahead and removed that function.

They've been quick to realise they've upset quite a few people and have introduced an extension to re-enable to Backspace key.

It does mean that Google have more 'access' to your web usage but they've probably got that anyway!

You can get the extension Go Back with Backspace here.
