the browser on the surface RT needs serious improvement.

1. there is no forward button....after hitting back button
2. back button is very buggy...often doesn't work.
3. whenever u hit the back button it has to refind and redownload the page on the net, since it wasn't stored in a cache. this makes browsing very slow. the google search app is actually better at surfing the net for this reason...since u can go back and forward through the pages you've visited (this is very tough, if at all possible, on the surface browser). this seems so basic of a feature that i have to say the IE developers for the RT are incompetent and should be fired.
4. when u click on a link there is no way to have it open in a new tab or window. thus it becomes a chore to navigate backwards since the back button often doesn't work.

other than this, i think the surface RT is a great device. the negative reviews are completely full of BS.
