What is the general UX rule followed wrt to navigation that a browser provides. I am developing a web based tool.I would be definately be enabling navigation to different screens within the tool, I want to understand should the same be allowed through the browser or not?
The browser has back and forward buttons whether we like it or not. I would work with that.
If the buttons are present but made non-functional by the developer, the end-user is likely to find the experience frustrating.
