  • Erm. Mozilla currently does support the tag for next, previous, top, author, copyright and a few others. The bar in question is available somewhere on the View menu (I'd say precisely, but I'm running Mac OS 8.6 here).

    Forward and back don't get affected, since (thankfully enough) it was decided that those buttons should stick to going backwards and forwards through the history.

    • But it's precisely when I don't have any forward history that I want this to work...

      • (Mine was meant to be a reply to darobin's post - must've clicked on the wrong 'Reply' button.)

        How would you distinguish between "having no forward history and using page's Next field", "have a forward history and not using page's Next field" and " have a forward history and using page's Next field "?

        The Mozilla bar is good - it keeps it separate and distinctive.

        Of course, if the Forward button changed colour, shape or something, then that may work (of course, changing colour isn't a recommended behaviour for things to show change due to colour blindness and so on), but I'm rambling now.

        • Well...

          • No history - have both forwards and next go to next.
          • Forward history - have next go to next, and forwards go through history

          It ties the two concepts together, essentially creating a history before you knew you had one. The reason I think the feature is good is that I can then browse massive online tutorials using mouse gestures, in this case it's obvious to me -- reading the page -- what my history is likely to become.
