Speaking for myself, often I'm not looking for a website in my history but for a specific page. Often I remember the website, not the page. The history feature of the browser should be intelligent enough to allow grouping by website. That's not a server problem. > Also, we do not want a user to open browser history and click > www.myApp.com/updateChartOfAccounts. Because that would be "out of > context".

They shouldn't, the application should be written in such a way that this is a POST, and it won't appear in the history. > With a stable URL they just click www.myApp.com and they get the main > page - every time. That's what bookmarks are for. You're trying to force your ideas of bookmarking and history management to the users. > The question remains - is there an elegant solution to this. What you call "stable URL" everybody else calls "cloaking" or "jailing". It *is* hostile to the user.
