 Hello @wpetro,

 Welcome to WordPress Core's Trac! Thank you for your feature request.

 The browser offers this feature and is best suited to provide the
 capability to go backwards through the web pages the user has explored.

 Many sites are heavily cached (either through caching services or server-
 side features) or maybe in a headless environment. For these, the database
 may not be accessed when requesting a web page. For these sites, this
 feature would not work.

 Given that the browser has the "back" feature built in and the limitations
 for the sites mentioned, I'll close this ticket. The resolution of
 `wontfix` may seems odd, though it's a classification to essentially mean
 the feature request is not a good fit for Core inclusion.

 But again, thank you for opening the ticket and making the suggestion.
