Have you ever been to a website where the back button just doesn’t work? In these instances, you press “back” to go back but instead you just end up at the same page where you started. Google chrome now plans to stop these kind of website schemes with a lockdown on “history manipulation” by websites. Chrome Finally Looking For Ways to Stop Back Button Hijacking.
