In many web browsers, pressing the backspace key returns you to the previous web page.
I've had feedback from several users that it was confusing to have the backspace key behave this way at World of Crosswords; they would prefer that backspace be used to delete the character in the selected cell of the puzzle matrix.
So the site has been updated to behave this way - the backspace key now acts the way it would in a text editor or word processor. We hope you like this new behavior!
The new functionality has been tested in Firefox 8.0, IE 8, Chrome 15.0.874.121 m, and Safari 5.1.1, on a Windows XP machine.
