    Easily the best part of the update, hats off to the Chrome team for ignoring the whiners and finally correcting this UX disaster that Internet Explorer thrust upon the world and people were too Stockholm Syndrome'd to see how godawful it was.

      I agree in part—pressing backspace only to have your form data lost is immensely frustrating. But many users have relied on this shortcut to navigate for a long while now. The least they could have done is offered a preference, or release an extension that enables this functionality.

      A more frustrating experience (for all of us "whiners") is to have functionality we use 100's of times per day suddenly stripped away without explanation or a comparable alternative. Pressing two keys to go back is cumbersome, and the shortcut they've offered requires me to look at my keyboard and carefully press the combo. :/
