Back navigation should close tab if new tab/no sites to go back to

There’s many news/aggregator sites that open a new tab when you tap a link. Then to go back, you have to close or switch tabs. My suggestion is to have the back button close the current tab in this case. Have it be opt-out in case people prefer the current behavior.


Can we please get some traction on this? This is such a solid feature that Safari and Arc implements and it’s wonderful. It’s one of those things that you don’t know how much you appreciate it until it’s gone.

In Safari or Arc, if I’m taken to a new tab, I can swipe back and be taken to the tab that got me there. It’s wonderful! Would love to see this come to Brave!
