      Description

      It would be useful to have an API that would provide access to the browser's browsing history and perform navigation in this history. Specifically:
      1. Determine a list of sites (URL, display name, access time etc.) in the history, both backward and forward
      2. Being able to programmatically navigate to any item in the history (both backward and forward)
      3. Determine whether Back/Forward buttons should be disabled or enabled (this may be already covered by #1)

      Using this API, it should be possible to implement the Back/Forward buttons including full history as found in modern browsers (see e.g. the attached screenshot from Firefox).
