The whole point of Ajax is to make requests in the background and not change the whole page or its URL. If that's not what you want, don't use Ajax.

well if you are loading new pages, you might as well refresh the page. But if you want a single page app. look into https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Guide/DOM/Manipulating_the_browser_history
