Possible to change URL parameters thru Javascript without refreshing?

I've got a page that has a few url parameters. There's a couple of modes the page can be entered in, with correspondingly different urls params. Also with the same page many of the processes are done thru AJAX without page refresh. My problem is that the AJAX updates makes the URL params old. Is there a way to update the URL parameters thru AJAX so the URL always stays current? I don't want to refresh the page because it'll defeat the AJAX feature of the page. Is this possible?

The url params of what? The current/main page? If that is what you are referring to, the instant you change the location.href, you will essentially "refresh" the current page. If you are referring to the page you are submitting the request to, then yes, you can change the params as needed. If you are calling some function, pass the parameters through the function and update the url within the function.

You cant change the URL or querystring runtime (on fly) without page refresh.. instead you should try to update varaibles in your page which is reading values form querystrings and passing these to redirection pages.. you can change these varaible values in between before going to second page..

Hope it will make sense ..
