When you access a url that has several anchor tags on it. You know what I mean, links at the top that navigate to a specific point in that page by adding a "#name" at the end of the url. In every other browser, if you click on a few of them and then start clicking the back button the browser will recognize the change in url and navigate to that specific point in the page. But in ie7, if you click a few anchor tags on the same page and then start hitting the back button, you will notice that the browser floats to the top of the page each time you hit back. This is because ie does not update the "location" object if you are navigating backwards through hashes. I am looking for a fairly simple way of pulling the hash from the url in the instance that you are using ie7 and hitting the back button through hashes on the same page.
Does this make sense. I could use the realsimplehistory library but that just seems like way too much overhead for such a simple functionality for one browser version.
