Improved restoration of History in Safari 5.1 Web Browsers
Safari 5.1 is now more thorough in maintaining your browsing history when re-opening tabs or windows. In the past, restoring previous tabs or windows did not include the browsing history in the Back/Forward buttons. Now, when you restore tabs or windows that had been closed, Safari maintains your earlier tab/window history. This applies in at least two areas:

When you restore windows following a quit/relaunch of Safari, whether using the Lion feature that automatically restores windows or History » Reopen All Windows From Last Session, or if you close a tab and use Command+Z (or Edit » Undo Close Tab) to re-open it.

This feature is available to all users of Safari 5.1, so people running Lion or 10.6.8 can use it.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described. Very nice. It appears enabling Private Browsing prevents this from happening, as you would expect.]

Improved restoration of History in Safari 5.1

Now if only Safari 5.1 would hold on to the page you're actually using while it's in the background. Thanks to the "refresh in background" bug and/or feature introduced in 5.1, Safari seems useless for all but the most basic Web browsing. Forget trying to keep a form open in a tab for more than a few moments.
