Scrolling Through History

by Barbara J. Feldman on July 30, 2004

In many browsers, users with a scroll mouse can move forward and backward through their browsing history by holding down the Shift key and rolling the navigation wheel on the mouse. Scroll two clicks, and you are two pages back in your history. Moving forward in history is just as easy: hold down Shift and roll the wheel forward. This tip works in Internet Explorer, Opera, and Mozilla Firefox, but not Netscape Navigator.
