The technical aspects would be more complex and potentially slower on every pageload to have the prev button for "latest" navigation. And because every browser should have a "back" button that should accomplish the exact same action, we didn't figure it was worth supporting.

Does your back button work for going to the previous page?

That makes sense. I just wasn't real sure what was behind it. The back button does work, but is slightly less convenient. I will say, sometimes on my phone the back button just closes the screen. Thank you as always for stopping to shed light. I appreciate it. :)

Don't know what device you're using, but my mouse comes with two little buttons by the thumb that are preprogrammed as forward and back buttons when my browser is the dominant window.

I use my laptop the most. But I do not have these mouse buttons. HOWEVER, upon reading your comment I realize that if I right click I do get the back option. I cannot believe I never knew I could do that. Look at you spreading important knowledge! :)

Heh, yup, I'm always looking for shortcuts, lol ;) I would have mentioned the right-click context menu, but honestly I didn't think of it, lol.

I hadn't noticed that until I saw your meme, but yeah, it seems silly to remove it. So many changes to the site lately. Some positive, some not so much lol

Acuity made a remark about why they took it out. Makes sense. On my phone the site is a general pain to use. So I stick with the laptop unless I am just browsing. Mostly anyway.

Is it faded out like this? And does it appear the same on the pages following?

If that is a yes, then the button still is nit there even for you. It appears as a ghost image on page one of latest, but beyond that it is not there.
