    Anyone else annoyed that you cant backtrack in the web browser? Say you were surfing the web then you go to send an email, when you go back to the browser there's no designated arrow that can backtrack your previous history on the web. I feel like this is another standard thing that this phone doesn't offer, its nothing too big but very noticeable and extremely agitating.

    I've tried that but I found that (in my case) it doesn't go back page by page, only site by site.

    hmm ive noticed it just depends on how long you have been away from the website, will it let you go back a couple pages. and i wish they would actually put a forward button.i believe lots of people would benefit from it

    Yes, a Forward button would definitely be nice. I also concur with the issue of being able to use the back button after leaving the Browser.

    THANK YOU.... I'm not the only one who hates this retarded feature (if it is called a feature).

    Wait, doesn't IE 10 on WP8 have a side-swipe back and forward gesture?

    Another thing I've noticed is that when I'm watching a youtube video in my browser and I leave to the homepage my place is lost in the video and you are forced to start from the beginning all over again.

    Yes I have to agree with some of the shortcomings with the browser. I agree with the history and back button issue, very annoying. Pressing the back button in the browser should ONLY go back in the browser history!

    The other browser issue: autocomplete. It's nice that I can type in "WP" in the browser and wpcentral.com comes up. But then after a while it gets all messed up. Typing "WP" for example will start to bring up random wpcentral articles or forum posts and those will displace just plain old wpcentral.com. Come on MS, I'm not typing in news.google.com to look at an article from last week!
