Hey all

Haven't been here in a while but got sucked back in again as soon as revisited Smiley Read a few posts about gaining control of the previous button in browser , and basically wondered what the advantage would be ? I'm sure there are probably some facepalms due but wondered what the implications are for someone who had less than "graceful" intentions ?

Dee look up HTML5 History API.

Pwning the history of the browser is really powerful and can be used for all kinds of malicious productive new capabilities. I personally use it with HIJAX sites (where I rewrite <a href s into AJAX calls with JS at client-load time - looks like a normal site to Google, but acts like an AJAX site to a human user) and, because of that technique, have to manipulate history. It's not flawless - IE specifically is shitty about it, but it's on the way. I think IE9 has full, or at least pretty durn close compliance.
