Noticed one feature on some social media websites but couldn’t find how it is called, let alone how it could be implemented.
Twitter and Reddit have the thing that scrolling the feed you can click on some post/tweet and open it as another page (in the same tab but with another link). Then click the ‘Go Back’ button which returns you to the same state and place of feed which allows the user to continue scrolling the feed without updating it every time. I hope I explained it clearly enough but if not I attach two GIFs of how it works on Twitter and Reddit.
I would appreciate it if someone could tell me how this feature/technology/etc is called and maybe explain the basic principle of how it is implemented. Thanks.
