    I have a long habit of holding down on it as I'm finishing reading/looking at something, I'll press it thinking I want to go back and then not release bc something caught my eye or just to be one step ahead.

    Don't you ever accidentally trigger it?

    It's kind of redundant though, the history can be just as easily accessed by pressing the bookmark button right next to it.

    That feature has been there for quite a while, at least a few iOS updates ago. Safari on OS X does the same thing.

    No because if I need to page back, I tap it I don't hold my finger on it.

    Sounds like you might need to adjust your habit. After all not all habits are good.

    I like that now in iOS 7….On most web pages you can simple swipe back versus holding the back arrow. Can't do that in iOS 6


    x2 this hold down back feature was in iOS6

    I find the list of previous pages that show up when you hold the back button very useful, especially when doing something like searching for reviews and you want to get back to the search page after reading a few pages of a review. Have to admit I've only recently realised you could swipe back to the previous page, very useful!

    Very useful. Every web desktop web browser has this feature too.

    I actually like this feature and I've never accidentally triggered it. I kind of found it purposely on accident when not wanting to hit back 10 times on a webpage. Like on certain browsers I kind of expected it to do what it does.

    After reading several of TH55's threads, I've come to the conclusion he just dislikes any change regardless of whether it's good or bad.
