Event when page returned to?

P: n/a
Is there an event which is triggered (such as onLoad) when I go back in
my browser?

If onLoad triggers also when I return to an already loaded page then is
this action specified anywhere, or is it at the whim of the browser
programmer?

A brief search was inconclusive.

Not always.

Nothing is triggered if the DOM state of the page has been preserved
in history. This is as it should be.
