You can't, and you shouldn't. You may try to experiment with replacing
the browser history so they don't go anywhere, but even that makes
your site behave in a way that is inconsistent with other sites.

Hiding what? The back button?

Bugger off. That is *my* back button. Not yours.

Besides, *my* browser won't let you interfeer with *my* history :-)

Thank you Richard. I was going to point out that maybe the better
strategy is to program in a way that actual accounts for user

sensitive some people can be... :)
