Subsequently, when the URL is entered in a web browser, the web browser recognizes registered content for the webpage and parses the URL for the values of the dynamic content. Further, the web browser monitors the values of the registered dynamic content and updates the URL when the values of the dynamic content changes.

In an embodiment, the method includes a built in JavaScript object available to application code written in JavaScript. The JavaScript object allows access to a native web browser component that tracks dynamic content on a webpage and updates the URL with the values provided by the application code. The JavaScript object provided by the web browser provides the following signature (fig.1).
