Managing Browser History Using Client Script
Basically, the walkthrough shows you how to use Sys.Application.navigate event and the Sys.Application.addHistoryPoint method. Once you understand these two, it is pretty simple.
The challenge with MSDN sample is that it leaves the reader to figure out how to accomplish the same thing without ASP.NET WebForms and the ScriptManager control. In this screencast, I take the guesswork out of it and show you how implement the sample without the ScriptManager as well as doing it using ASP.NET MVC.
