Long Press The Back Button To Access Android's Browser History

When you're browsing the web in Android and need quick access to a site you've previously visited, you can get there quickly by pressing and holding the back button.This shortcut works in the default Android browser on any phone or tablet. On some phones, you can then use the tabs at the bottom to access your bookmarks and other favourites. Generally, you can still access your history through the browser's settings, but this is just a really quick way to get there.


    Don't try this if you are using cyanogenmod. That rom has a feature to kill the app in foreground on long pressing the back button, be it browser on anything else.
