Summary0002800: Back / forward mouse buttons doesn't work

I am new to NetSurf, and it works pretty nice. Very impressive.

I noticed, that my mouse keys for forward and backwards don't do anything. That is a bit annoying.

Checking `xev` X11 utility, I can tell that I see ButtonPress and ButtonRelease events when pressing the mouse button.

Back: button 8
Forward: button 9

I would expect there are ways to do it from GTK even in more portable manner, and handle button reassignments, etc.

On a related note, It would be nice if Ctrl+ScrollWheelUp and Ctrl+ScrollWheelDown, were hooked to zoom in / zoom out, just like Ctrl+Plus and Ctrl+Minus are hooked.

Additionally Ctrl+= , should also be hooked to zoom in. This way one doesn't need to actually press Ctrl+Shift+Plus, to achieve it. Most browsers, accept both Ctrl+= and Ctrl+Shift+= (aka Ctrl+Plus).
