i agree that no extension (or trailing slash) is better, because it is neater and shorter.
i totally disagree with the oft mentioned reason that you see repeated here continually:
eg. in case you change underlying technology in the future
any server that can support no extensions will have the ability to parse any file as directed.
for instance i have an old .asp site that i moved to an apache server and converted it to php, i kept all the urls the same 'example.asp' and just instructed the server to parse .asp as php
