In IE, when I scroll down a webpage, click on an article to read it and then hit Backspace to go back - IE always remembers how far down on the page I was so I never have to re-scroll down every single time I go back.

However, this never works in Google Chrome! So inefficient.
How do I get Chrome to remember my position (where I was) on the previous page when I go back?

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion.

Keep in mind that hitting backspace is just a keyboard shortcut to go back to the previous page (in the browser history). Scrollmark extension did that - but it's outdated. "This extension will remember your scroll position on a particular page, and restore it the next time you visit that page." – amiregelz Sep 30 '12 at 1:29
@verve you're welcome to edit your question into something more useful and with less complaining, then your question could potentially be reopened. – nhinkle Oct 1 '12 at 2:56
@AlE., This looks more like a question disguised as a "rant". There's nothing wrong with stating that a browser is inefficient, especially when the prevailing opinion is that remembering scroll state is more efficient. – Pacerier May 9 at 15:17
@Pacerier: The question was edited since I posted my comment. Perhaps you should look at the original and see just how "ranty" it was. Even so, my comment is now out of date because this is, indeed, a question. – Al E. May 9 at 19:33

Update your google chrome to the latest build, this will solve your problem.

Confirmed on Chrome 22.0.1229.79 – amiregelz Oct 1 '12 at 16:33
I'm on the latest build of Chrome as well (22.0.1229.79) on OS X Mountain Lion and I've noticed that the browser doesn't return to its previous scroll point when you hit BACK as well. It wasn't an issue on the latest version of Chrome on Windows 7 or 8. – Sahas Katta Oct 2 '12 at 2:07
