Anchoring by web server to make new URL for a AJAX web content

Web 2.0 usually uses AJAX as the implementation techniques, The modern web developers consider Ajax when planning or building their websites is potentially a powerful tool to enhance usability. There are however, challenges in implementing Ajax functionality on a web page.

The problem occurs when content is loaded via Ajax and then the "state" of the website is changed without the URL that points to the page being affected. If the user returns to the page via a bookmark or shares the link with a friend, the original content that you want to share or bookmark will not be automatically displayed. The website would instead revert to its original state, show the latest content retrieved through Ajax call. Flash websites used to have the same problem: they did not allow users to link to anything but the initial screen.

The invention proposed a idea to help user share the web page content, even under AJAX web pages. The method is to save the current web page content into a web server, and create a new link for user to share the content. In this way, users can always share the web pages to others without web developers' pre-work.

Advantages:

1. Be able to share the web page content under Ajax pages

2. No need the web developers pre-work to enable the Ajax bookmark functions

3. The shared page will always be the content that others want to share with you

Step 1. You visit the web pages on the world wide web. The contents might be either static pages or dynamically loaded via Ajax calls. Step 2. You find some interested things and want to share them to your friends. However, you can not share dynamical contents by simply sending the URL to your friends because that won't work. With our in...
