    The U1 browser has changed in favour of Chrome as far as I can see. I preferred the previous stock browser as esc keyboard button no longer goes back a page. Were might the best place be to download the right browser?

    Thanks for the link, seems for android v5 their going with chrome, it's annoying for me having to use the onscreen back arrow from the android pop up menu. I would have thought there's a browser with support for keyboard esc key

    Edit: Tried it but ended up with a bad zip, back button would have been handy, mouse pads aggravating my bad shoulder.

    Yeah, me too, bad zip!

    esc works for me in Chrome!

    Which keyboard are you using?
    If you use a keyboard why do you have an onscreen popup menu?

    Thanks for the replies, I should have taken a closer look at change logs. I use a rii mini keyboard which has been fine overall. It only seemed to go back with esc on Chrome if leaving the browser settings but not between web pages. It must have been a mistake on my part with tabs and not seeing a back arrow onscreen. Got lost and needed to bring up menu from bottom of screen for one. I'll take another look at Chrome, tried 3 others but they did not seem to have esc keyboard button. Catch myself making simple mistakes with everything that's going on.

    Thank you for the link, just in case I think I'll continue to shop around for the time being. Fortunately the U1 is not my main device for browsing, still getting used to the change from a slow Win 8 tab to Android os
