Just in case you're not aware, Alt+Backspace should be Delete (doesn't get the button back, but better than nothing!).
For anyone that doesn't know, there are tons of keyboard shortcuts in ChromeOS. To view them on the Chromebook, just hit Ctrl+Alt+? and an interactive overlay should popup, just press the Ctrl, Shift, Alt buttons to see what each modifier key does.
