I'm looking for a web browser which lets me view the link that I went to, before I clicked back and went to another page.

So for example:

  • I navigate to page A
  • on that page, I click link B
  • I click back, going back to page A
  • I click on link C

Link B (unless I find it again) is permanently inaccessible in the forward/back buttons, no matter how often I press back or forward.

I'm looking for a web browser (or addon) that would operate similar to Vim's undo branches, and allow me to view or see that link again.

Mozilla Firefox with the History in Threads extension will do exactly what you desire.

With this combination of software, you can see every page you visited, in a convenient tree format.
