The back button problem that we face brings us back to some history. HTML/HTTP originally was only to handle web pages and nothing else. By webpages I mean simple read only dead webpages... that you read like a book. This is why we have buttons like back, forward, bookmark etc etc. Few did think that HTML/HTTP would evolve to handle web app like what we have now. By web app I mean real application that allows you to perform transactions, even monetary transactions (with Credit Cards etc). With this, these convenience buttons became troublesome buttons..
