    This might not be the right location for this question...however, my Safari is running on a MBP :)

    Only been a Mac user for 3 months now but can't seem to figure out a basic navigation feature browsing with Safari.

    Let's say I've visited 10 webpages in order (1,2,3, etc.). I'm now looking at page 10 (the last one). Now I want to go back to page 7 to re-read its contents followed by page 6.

    The only way I know to do this is through history. In IE, there was a drop down arrow that would take you back to page 7 (like a history). However, in IE if I now use the back arrow, I'd go to page 6. In Safari, if I use history to get from page 10 to 7 and then use the back arrow, it takes me back to page 10 again.

    Using gestures on the trackpad is SO convenient that using the history seems like a time killer. Am I doing something wrong, or is this the only way to navigate backwards?

    Hopefully my question makes sense. Thanks in advance.

    Rather than going through your history to revisit a site, try holding down the back button to bring up the "IE-esque" drop down menu for your past sites. That keeps your browsing order the same.
