It would be nice if the back/forward keys on my mouse would work in the HTML viewer.
Their purpose is to quickly navigate back and forth without using the usual buttons near the browser's adress bar.
In FF and IE the buttons work by default but in the embedded view they do not. Perhaps these events are not forwarded?

i agree completely.. im not sure when they stopped working since they worked at one point in my coding, but i will try to fix it. it should be simple.  i may have broken it during intercepting of the Escape key.

im also hoping to eventually get it so you can use some navigation stuff from the edit box without ever switching to html panel, like pgup,pgdn,wheel scroll.  (id like to get wheel scrolling working in memo view too).

I must have been mistaken about it ever working, since the web browser component has no code to detect such buttons.
Nevertheless i was able to add code to detect and simulate the mouse buttons so this works now; will be in next release uploaded tonight.
