This object can make link clicks be converted into AJAX requests, effectively making any web site a web application.

It can traverse the current Web page, alter the current links, so when the user clicks on them, it sends HTTP requests to the respective link URL using AJAX and loads the next page.

It uses PushState to update the page browsing history so when the user go back it restores the previous page.

The object alters all the page links with external HTTP or HTTPS URLs and replaces the given element selector with content from the AJAX response.

AJAX allows to load page content faster as it does not require to load the whole page again.

However, to take advantage of AJAX you need to change pages to send AJAX requests when the user interacts with it. You also need to update the page history, so the browser goes back to the right page when the user hits the back button.

This package provides a solution for both problems. It changes page links so when the users click on them the code sends AJAX requests to the server in order to load the next page.

At the same time, it updates the page history state, so the back button clicks will make the browser go back to the right pages.
