Welcome to the wonderful world of the history API. In modern browsers (i.e. FF4+ and anything that uses WebKit) you can use the pushState method on the history object to update the URL in the browser without actually shoving the user off to a new page. On older browsers, the location.hash parameter can be used to achieve a similar (but not identical) effect. Both these techniques preserve the back/forward behaviours of the browser.
