jQuery address is a jQuery plugin that allow you to make deep linking to your website or web application. You can make your website 'browser bookmarking' or 'social sharing' friendly by creating an unique virtual addresses that can point to a website section or an application state.

Personally, I have used this plugin for a web application few months ago. We use jQuery address to allow the application state to be shared with other users with unique virtual URL. It's stable and simple to implement.

Also, if you are a flash developer, you can check out the flash version of deep linking script - swfaddress


With the implementation of jQuery Address to your website, you can have the following features enabled:

  • Bookmarking in a browser or social website
  • Sending links via email or instant messenger
  • Finding specific content using the major search engines
  • Utilizing browser history and reload buttons
