How would you go about implementing this in a custom application?

Ive been thinking about this, and the tracking of current URL can either be done server-side or client-side.

I feel client-side is the easiest with JS and use validation on server-side to ensure that we are only forwarding within our own domain and thus not acting as a proxy.

Thougts? Implementation samples? etc?

JS is the best way, but I always like to put in a non-JS execution path.

One of the tricks I do is to use JS to create a session cookie earlier on. This cookie then tells the server whether or not the client has JS.

I also do this for AJAX studliness.
