A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

AJAX Breaking Browser Navigation Buttons

I read a lot of people are complaining that AJAX applications are breaking the Navigation of the Web Browsers. I am sure most of these people also say that "Web Browser" Backward <-> Forward navigation is wrong anyway. I kinda like the idea that if I am in an AJAX based application I will get out of the application completly by just pressing the back button.

Its not AJAX that breaks the navigation. Its the applications that break the navigation. Its the applications that break the Bookmarking.

Google Maps seem to have sorted the bookmarking issue out. But you have to remember that some applications don't lend themselves to Web Style Navigation, some applications don't lend themselves to bookmarks.

More on this later after I have thought some more on the subject.

Have you any comments, leave me one or email me: paul.kinlan@gmail.com
