How To Reclaim The 'Backspace To Go Back A Page' Feature In Chrome

You used to be able to hit backspace to go back to a previous webpage in Chrome but a month ago, Google indicated that it will be removing this feature in a future update for the web browser.

Now Google has unveiled a detailed plan on how it will be phasing out Flash on its popular Chrome browser.


Chrome Finally Beats Internet Explorer And Edge As Most Popular Web Browser

It was inevitable. Google Chrome has snatched the crown off Microsoft Internet Explorer and Edge as the most popular web browser in the world.
