Apple - How to make the Backspace key to take me to the previous page in Safari 6?

I actually asked a similar question (but more broad so this isn't a duplicate). I got this as an answer (it works, I tested it):

Write the below line in terminal:

defaults write -bool YES

Then restart Safari.

Hope this helps!

Apple removed the backspace (probably to prevent users that wanted to edit a form field to accidentally go to the previous page)

You've got a number of options:

  • Use the command + <- shortcut for back.
  • Use the 2 finger swipe gesture (push the webpage to the right)
  • Install the BringBackDelete safari extension.
