---- Crazy characters being added in the URL
- 11:48 am on Dec 4, 2011
Only Safari? Not Chrome?
For some PCs, it was in Firefox. Others in Chrome. And in some, in both. Also in Safari. But not in IE; never saw the problem in IE
In different browsers, the new addition #.TtRB_LJ2GCo varies. For the same page in different browsers, the URL effectively becomes different
What's the actual problem with that?
True, it does NOT break anything.
But I am very uneasy when you never set your site to have that #.TtRB_LJ2GCo URL extension, and you just wake up one day to find that it suddenly started showing new characters in the URL
It becomes a problem when another site links to my content, and their link uses the new extensions -- and clicking on the link from the other site leads to 404 Not Found error on my site.
