With the Ubuntu Touch OTA-4 update released, the browser now has a privacy mode and some privacy options (clear cache and clear Browsing history) which are very welcome.
Now there is an app. But you have to install the Open Store as described here. In summary you just have to run the following two lines in the phone terminal (taken from the comments from Zachary Igielman): wget http://notyetthere.org/openstore/v1/openstore.mzanetti_0.2_armhf.click pkcon install-local --allow-untrusted ...

Touch somewhere on the screen and the back option will appear in the upper left corner.
A setting like that still doesn't exist. Currently the only way to do it is from the terminal by deleting the content of /home/phablet/.local/share/webbrowser-app Keep in mind that the bookmarks are also stored in that folder and if you want to keep them you shouldn't delete everything inside.
