Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum but not to the Microsoft ecosystem. I've also been a die-hard user of Firefox for many years and although it has many features that are just brilliant (e.g. the Multi-Account Containers), I've always felt like that browser was one step behind in regards to fluidity due to its engine. Therefore, I'm giving Edge another chance, hoping it can eventually give me something like that Multi-Account Containers feature from Firefox. I'm loving the new Edge... at least, for the most part. HOWEVER, there's something that keeps bothering me; that is, the "go back" shortcut.
Let me explain. When you use Windows, you (can) use "backspace" key to go back. I use that shortcut a lot in the File Explorer. The built-in apps also use "backspace" to go back and there are many third-party apps that use the very same simple but effective shortcut. That was also the shortcut IE used and I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure that was also the shortcut the original Microsoft Edge used and it's also the shortcut used by Firefox. So even though I know Microsoft is trying to attract Google Chrome users by using that browser shortcut (alt + arrow left), I think they should AT LEAST provide an option to change that shortcut to "backspace", which is used almost everywhere even in their own OS and apps and also in order to keep consistency. I work a lot from the computer and that shortcut is what keeps making me going back to Firefox.
Thanks in advance for reading me and, please, excuse my English, but I'm not a native speaker.
I remember Google changed the shortcut from backspace key to to Alt+ Arrow because many users complained that they were pressing backspace accidentally and it was frustrating, also Google's diagnostic data confirmed it too.
