Our web applications are designed in such that its expected that user
will use browser back button to go to previous screens. So we don't
have any back button as such on application pages. But I have seen in
Usability tests, if there are some view only pages (no actions) and
the only option is to go back to previous pages, users do search for a
back button and do not use Browser Back button.
I want to know what is current trend in Web applications- Whether to
use browser back buttons, or to provide back buttons on applications
or provide back button only on view pages. I have seen propagation of
back button even in Outlook which is good.

Thanks for all the help.
I will summarize and send to the list.
