This question already has an answer here:

I find it's comfortable to have the link to useful page in every single pages so the user can interact with our application conveniently. But sometimes, I find that the browser's buttons is convenience enough, and I don't know if users are more comfortable with link or browser's buttons.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There is no actual question here, it seems. –  André Mar 8 '13 at 11:14
Although the question is poorly constructed I think it's not a duplicate of "Do users understand the browser back button?". The question here is if the back button is enough, not if it's used in the first place. See my (and the only) answer to this question: nowadays web apps may run in a chromeless browser setting which eliminates the back button thus requiring a different way to navigate the app. –  Vincent van Scherpenseel Mar 9 '13 at 21:36

If it's important that users can reach all pages without using the browser buttons then absolutely do so: running web apps in chromeless environments is becoming more and more common.

Safari on iOS support this using the apple-mobile-web-app-capable meta tag.
