Net Surfing: Lose the 'Back' Button

11.17.05 - Your browser's "BACK" button is probably the most used part of the program when you are surfing the Net. And it is also the most frustrating.

If you find yourself waiting for a page to reload everytime you click the "BACK" button, you may want to consider the following tip: When clicking a link on a Web page, use the RIGHT mouse button and select "Open in New Window" from the context menu. This will keep the current page open on the screen. When you're done reading the linked page, simply close that window and you'll be back in your previous window without having to wait for it to load.

In addition to saving you time, this method of surfing will also keep you from losing track of where you you have been. I wouldn't surf any other way.
