I'm trying to figure how to make the header of my page not reload when browsing the site.

An example of what I'm trying to accomplish is the play bar: http://sverigesradio.se

Any plugins or ideas on how that's done?

server side send only the right part not the header

<body>
<header>
<!-- your header here -->
</head>
<div id="mybody"></div>
</body>

Open in new window

with :

var id = "1";
jQuery("#mybody").load("serverside.php?chunk_page_id="+id);

Open in new window

Not sure I understand the above solution.

Could you explain further?

So the non-reloading div would be #mybody?

no it's the header

#mybody get the "new" page calling serverside.php
serverside.php receive a parameter : chunk_page_id
to know which page to send (echo)

No points for this, please, but this design is showing up more and more.  Google has been using it for a couple of years.  Because it uses JavaScript (jQuery) and CSS to create the visual rendering of the web page, it makes programmatic "web scraping" of the content more difficult, thereby protecting the content a little better from script kiddies who would steal without respect to intellectual property rights.

Gotcha, so this would be more complicated to add to an existing website then as the entire current page has to be loaded this way while the header is static.  

Are there any performance issues with doing this on bigger sites?  I guess not if google does it?

Ah meta descriptions and such need to be defined outside of the load then?
