New Zealand computer scientists are redesigning the back button on web browsers in an attempt to make them more efficient.
According to the BBC, computer scientists at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch believe that they can make the humble back button do great things.
Often it is impossible for web surfers to find a page they have visited recently because the back button on their browser only gives them access to a sub-set of pages they have visited.
The Kiwi team has been trying out a software program on web browsers that is creates a complete linear history of all the pages a user visits during a session.
They are also making the back menu more efficient with thumbnail representations of the pages visited.
"It is obvious that we need to make the user interface as simple as possible," computer scientist Andy Cockburn told the BBC.
