Often a web application will change states as the user works with it. If the
user were to do a "refresh" in the browser, the state is generally lost unless
the underlying javascript and/or server do a lot of work to keep track of this.
The simplest method for doing this would be to tell the browser that if a
refresh is done, it should go to a specific url other than the original.
Obviously this could have big security implications so it would be reasonable
to restrict the url to the current domain or even the current page (use '#' or
'?' to get the server and javascript to get the correct state back).
