I agree; none of the browsers I've used have a visual representation of what pages are on the stack.  At a minimum, this is clearly "currently acceptable UI design."

One vaguely dangerous element here is that in the browser model, there's no persistent connection between a window and a source file, whereas an IDE typically does have one.  Will this "back-arrow" functionality also work on jumps to definitions that live in different files? This opens up a bunch of UI questions for me.  Possibly it's simpler just to ignore this for now.
