    When online is there a key that puts me back one page,instead of using the mouse and bringing it up to the reverse arrow.

    Interesting. On my ibook apple+left arrow goes back a page and apple+right arrow goes forward again. Just did it a gain to be sure.

    I didn't know about cmd-left arrow myself so I tried it on my new iMac here and it also worked. But use whatever works for you obviously! ;)

    Actually I didn't know about it either, until I had read the original post I had never thought about a short cut. So I experimented with what I thought would be logical. :apple:-left seemed natural. :apple:-[ would never have occurred to me.
    I am glad tho that it worked for you. Thought for a minute there I was going nuts.;)

    The "Delete" key works. I use it with PCs and nicely enough it works with Mac also :) Plus, it's a direct back so most of the time the previous page is cached so the loading is less than a second.

    i think "delete" is the same function as backward button, or cmd+[.

    Safari doesn't always read cache directly like other browsers on mac, so in many situations (such as here MR), it takes much longer (than 1 sec) to load when you press back/forward button.

    I've always used Cmd > Left arrow, but the Delete and cmd [ works too.
