Why would a browser need a 'up' button?


The simple explanation is perhaps because of all the crappy websites, or simply the basic nature of the linked web. In any case the up button is a great usability feature, and it's rather puzzling other browsers do not copy it.

It's the feature i miss the most when using other browsers. Obviously I can get to the front-page of any site by selecting and deleting everything but the base URL in the address-bar, but two quick taps on the up button is both much easier and faster.
