Google blocks abusive JS that don'r allow users to use Back button
Google is going to make it impossible for websites to put the back button in its browsers out of play, according to a message from the Chromium team.

Some websites use sneaky referrals and other tricks to make it difficult to leave the website. If a user presses the back button in such a case, he will be redirected to a page that redirects him to the website he is trying to leave.

It is an old problem that has been causing frustration for many internet users for years. The Chromium team now plans to adjust the back button so that it ignores automatic redirects and other manipulations in the history of the browser by a website. A referral can only take place if a user agrees himself.

The custom back button is added to all different versions of the Chrome browser, including on Android.
