The change in the browser address bar?

The article habrahabr.ru/post/108611/ the method changes the browser address bar using anchor( anchor #).


Recently, I saw that on the websites:
dropbox.com,
github.com/defunkt/facebox/tree/master/lib,...

at the moment navigation through folders

the address bar of the browser changes without anchors.


How the creators of these sites, did that happen?

Then watch this github.com/balupton/History.js/, makes working with the browser history. There is support for multiple libraries. For older browsers that don't support History API, there is imitation through the anchor.
