Starting from the S30 onward, IBM introduced two new keys for the ThinkPad's keyboard, the browser forward and backward keys. They replaced the two empty spaces found on the left and the right side of the 'Up' arrow key.

While they are intended to work as browser keys, they are in fact, fully customizable.

Linux support

See the Special Keys HOWTO to know how to configure these two keys. They are referred to as Forward and Backward there.
