What is the link between a web page and keyboard Backspace key ? when v press backspace key while opening a web page and it ll move the previous page. y it so ? during some security how is it possible to work good from user side ?

The backspace key is a keyboard shortcut for browser Back button. Unless a textbox or embedded object has the focus, pressing the backspace key will function the same as clicking the Back button.

It's really entertaining to be editing something and accidentally click outside the textbox with the touchpad, hit backspace, and lose the text. – Mark Sowul Mar 8 '11 at 15:35
@MarkSowul: That's one of the reasons I use Lazarus (Firefox, Chrome, Safari). – Dennis Williamson Mar 8 '11 at 16:13
