Could you file a bug about this? (And any differences in parity between 
widget and mobileControl, for that matter!).

IIRC we added:

   go back in widget ..
   go forward in widget ...

To navigate forward / back (so the retreat command is at least catered 
for I think). There's also:

   do ... in widget ... (although this was a horrendous mistake 
syntactically which we are now realizing!)
   launch url ... in widget ...

If you put 'widget' into the LiveCodeScript section of the dictionary 
then you'll see the widget specific tailorings of normal LiveCode Script 

Warmest Regards,
