Lost Work due to UI not auto-saving as expected

I was editing a document for about half and hour and had gotten into a flow. I was stuck on how to spell a particular world so used google. Unfortunately, I forgot to open a new tab and google opened over the top of my document. I hit back...

and found the document as it was before I started editing. I had assumed that my work would have been incrementally saved somehow (perhaps to the git index?) because every other similar service works that way. It's doubly counter intuitive because when using git for software, git commits are made at logical stopping points (bug fixed, feature done, or at the very leads, the code compiles) not continually in case of a power outage or a computer crash.

Needless to say, this is incredibly frustrating.
