Due to a priority shift this request has slipped to the backlog. I hate to bring bad news. I will continue to provide the feature team your feedback and votes.
Hopefully this will move back up in the queue soon.
The team is working on changes to the desktop client so recently opened tabs are kept in memory, as long as it doesn’t use too much memory.
I will keep you posted as we make further progress.

I agree, the website tab needs to stay where it was last at, with a home button and back forward buttons. It should really be what effectively amounts to a permanent Edge tab.
This item remains on the backlog.
The team continues to make progress on this. We will share more details as we have them.
