Updating address bar with new URL without hash or reloading the page

Just to make it easier to understand the article, this is what Facebook does when you open a photo, for example. The url bar changes to point DIRECTLY to that photo, so you can share the URL without losing where you are in the site. Remember sites based on framing last decade?

JQuery or JavaScript tricks for mobile devices like – Android, Windows, BlackBerry, Apple, iphone, ipad

JavaScript support is very good on modern mobile browsers. The mobile version of Firefox and Chrome provide pretty much desktop-level support for HTML5(CSS 3 + JavaScript + HTML 5 ) features. Most mobile phones are running some version of WebKit (what Chrome runs on), so you're pretty much guaranteed better support than IE8 provides if you're developing for mobile. Detecting Mobile Devices Instead of using jQuery you can use simple JavaScript to detect it: if( /Android|webOS|iPhone|iPad|iPod|BlackBerry|IEMobile|Opera () ) { // some code for mobile } or you can combine them both to make it more accessible through jQuery. $. =…

Let’s take a look. Why Geolocation API ? In many cases, obtaining user location would be extremely useful to establish better user experience, for…

Just try to imagine about all possible advantages which you can get using this technology – full-screen photo albums, videos, and even games.
