I do not remember when some buttmuncher changed all web-browsers so that we would lose hours of work every year.  Since the first commercially successful typewriters were produced, the backspace did something amazing and simple; it backed up one space.  Then, 150 years later some web-browser programmers changed the backspace key function to have your web-browser go back one page.  I guess they did not know that control+left-arrow would do that; or the ‘go back’ button on the top left of the window.

But we can undo this stupidity!
