Something I seem to be missing is when I press backspace the page doesn't go back to the last page as it did in Windows, does anyone have any ways around this?

There is a Chrome extension to do this. Once installed you need to enable it in its options.

Please note that the extension requires quite extensive permissions. Clearly, since it has to navigate your history. A little paranoia has never hurt anyone :) Advice to use arrow-workaround ALT+(Left|Right)Arrow –  lobner Apr 1 at 2:59

I don't know if there is a possibility to do that. But I have a workaround which works with every browsers on every platforms: you can use Alt+Left-Arrow to go back. Many applications that offers "navigation" have this shortcut also, so it is a worthy investment to try learning it :) So: Alt+Left-Arrow to go back Alt+Right-Arrow to go forward Very useful :)

Workaround:

ALT+

This isn't included by default in Chrome on Linux since this (as I have read somewhere) is "not the Linux way" of navigating. ALT+ or ALT+ can be used for navigating through history.

I hate all this decisions like the disabling of "one click selects all" in the url bar –  Pitto Jun 6 '11 at 8:51
