Backspace Means Backspace

(Last Updated On: October 23, 2018)

We’ve heard a lot of feedback here at Sporcle about the Backspace key. You might be playing a quiz (ie US States Blitz) and you’re trying like mad to spell Massachusetts right as the time counts down from zero to one. As you backspace to retype your answer, the time runs out,  your backspace key sends you back a page in your browser and your score isn’t counted.

This kind of thing is frustrating, we understand, but there is a solution. As this problem usually happens just in Google Chrome (Our personal favorite), you can download an extension that makes this problem go away. In the future, you can play any of our great online blitz quizzes and never have to worry about the backspace key having a negative effect on your Sporcling.
