The SnapBack button is a great feature. How often have you gone to a page you enjoyed, wandered off the path into the wilderness of the Internet, then tried to find that original page again? SnapBack can take you right back to where you started. Keep in mind that SnapBack is a temporary marker. There are three ways to use SnapBack:
- Google search results:
When you do a search in Google, the search results page from which you choose a link is set as the SnapBack page. That is, you might click a link on the first page of the search results, then wander through four or five pages. The SnapBack icon in the Google field will take you back to that first page. If you go to the fourth page of Google results and click a link from there, the SnapBack icon will take you back to that fourth page.
Note: If you open different windows to use Google, the SnapBack button in each window will return you to the search results for that window.
- Choose a page:
When you type a new url (web address), or choose a bookmark, or choose a page from the History menu, or open a new window, the SnapBack is applied to that page.
- Assign SnapBack to a page:
You can go to the History menu and choose "Mark Page for SnapBack" for any open page (or press Command Option M). This will override the automatic SnapBack that was applied to a page.
This assigned SnapBack will only last until you do one of the things mentioned above: enter a new url, choose a bookmark, choose a page from the History menu, or click the Back or Forward button.
