rekonq: Add a pulldown for multiple steps to the "Forward" button

completed by: Furkan Üzümcü

mentors: Panagiotis Papadopoulos

As stated in [1] it would be cool, if there was a pulldown menu for the “Forward” button, just like there is for the “Back” button.

That way you can quickly jump forward several pages in the history:


e.g. let’s say you surfed to a website, clicked on some links, then you decide to go back three sites in the history, because you wanted to look something up. After you are done with that, you want to jump forward those three sites again.

Here’s where this task comes into play: Currently you have to press the forward button three times to achieve this. With a pulldown menu you only need one click. :-)
