Allow for quick navigation through the history

(Design)
#28

Browsers allow users to quickly navigate between pages in their history (Back and Forward buttons). This features avoids the need to request and download the page from the server for a second time. This prevents consuming unnecessary bandwidth and generating additional HTTP requests.
It is therefore recommended to not implement elements that render the page unoperational after leaving it.

Avoid:

  • Form buttons that are disabled after submission
  • Menus that stop working after one click
  • JavaScript effects that hide page content upon leaving the page
