Google Chrome wants to stop back-button hijacking – Ars Technica

December 19, 2018

Well IMHO, its about time some browser team did something about this.  So, the nefarious website renders the back button useless by inserting its own URL at the top of the history list as its first action, so that before the user even decides what to do with the page, it is already entered as the “previous” page.  Hit the back-button and you are right where you were!

Another ingenious, though evil, data-driven solution.  More than ever, one person’s solution is another person’s problem!!
