We have considered the [History & Remote plugin][1] of jQuery and the
[Browser History Manager][2] of YUI too. They are both in our  
candidate list.

There are two major features added into SinglePage plugin:

1. You can backward/forward, even backward/backward/forward/backward/ 
    as many times as you want. It is because we push the Jifty  
fragment information into a
    history storage, so we can take it back and perform ajax request  
each time even if the
    original HTML link element is not exist.

2. When you paste /#/abc in location bar, or click the reload button  
any time, you will be
    redirected to /abc. So people can bookmark without getting lost.

3. We have defined our own SPA js object, and put all logic inside  
it. So it is very easy to
    use other libraries/plugins if we want.

We do want to use the history & remote plugin (because it is written  
in jQuery!), but it does
not have a history storage. So it is not easy to make feature 1.  
Klaus Hartl said[3] he will
rewrite it, so we can just wait for a better future ;-)

The Browser History Manager of YUI is much powerful than others. It  
is really a state
machine and can play with other YUI widgets nicely. But it is a  
little hard to use, and
it does not support Opera and Safari 2.x well.

The size of minified JS file:

History & Remote: 4KB
Browser History Manager: 8KB

I think it is acceptable to use RSH for now, and to see if others  
will be better.
