New Delhi: Google has finally made up its mind to remove Backspace keyboard shortcut that allows users to go back to the previous web page using the 'backspace key' .

The search engine giant made this announcement while experimenting with the latest Chrome v52.

The developers of Chromium project is taking this action because a large number users while filling their forms accidently hit backspace button in the browser window and they end up losing everything they had just submitted.

On the code review page,developers stated that “0.04% of page views navigate back via the backspace button and 0.005% of page views are after a form interaction.”

So, in order to prevent such accidents from happening they want to delete the Backspace function in the new Chrome.

However, hardcore Chrome users are not happy with Google's decision which will be implemented in a couple of weeks.
