Some people may think about this as a browser history.
After all - if I clear the history those buttons should be disabled,
because there ill be
nowhere to go.

Anyway, I guess the actual history is kept either inside SQLite or
some other means
and it is not possible to clear it from either WebKit2GTK or GTK+2/GTK+3 API.

Or is it?

Thank you.
