With Javascript, you can't

The only way is by using frames. Then the address bar will show index.html at all times.

What browser are you using where you can see the url path in the title bar?

The title bar is the bar at the very top of the browser, NOT the place where you type a url in to view a page (the address bar).

If you don't want the url in the title bar just give the page a title and that is what will be displayed:
<title> your page </title>
