Describe the bug
You can use the back button to step to the previous page in your Flutter app, but after pressing "back" the "forward" button does not become enabled on my browser.

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
Open the Flutter Gallery app in your browser. Tap to navigate to any page. For example, "Style", then "colors". Hit the back button. The forward button does not become enabled after navigating to the new page.

Expected behavior
A clear and concise description of what you expected to happen.
I expect the forward button to become enabled after I navigate to the previous page.

This will be a new framework feature. Flutter was designed for native mobile where there's no such thing as "forward".

We should prioritize this. We could certainly put in a forward stack to go along w/ the back stack. This is pretty core to how folks expect the web to work.

After chatting briefly with @mdebbar we decided that this will be orders of magnitude easier to fix after we unfork the project.
