Is there a keyboard shortcut for "Back" in Chromium browser? I thought the Backspace key usually works, but it doesn't. On Ubuntu 11.10.

No, but Alt+left arrow does! ;) –  wim Oct 17 '11 at 9:32
    
@Norbert, Wim: One of you should put that as an answer. –  RedGrittyBrick Oct 17 '11 at 9:34
    
I was not sure about that since I use Google Chrome on Windows. –  Norbert Willhelm Oct 17 '11 at 9:46

There is a chromium extension for enabling the backspace key: askubuntu.com/a/347849/250556 –  ThorSummoner Apr 22 at 18:39

You can use Alt+left as keyboard shortcut for "Back".

And alt+right for forward –  pinouchon Mar 8 '13 at 9:57

In Ubuntu 11.10 Alt+Right turns up volume and Alt+Left turns it down and this is the default accounting to the shortcut menu. It would have to be custom made by either overriding those shortcuts or making your own.

Personally I feel the backspace when cursor is not in an editable text field would be a better option to go back.

Did you mean to put left twice? –  Lee Taylor Dec 25 '12 at 23:07
