Keeping the Browser's Address Bar Clean... Can't Post

Hi:

Is there a way to keep the Browser's address bar clean? Instead of having something like "http://www.server.com/cgi-bin/programs/file.cgi?user=953639298956", It would be nice to see only "http://www.server.com". Is it possible or just a dream?

Make it real... please. Frown

The best you can hope for is "http://www.server.com/cgi-bin/programs/file.cgi". That is, unless, file.cgi does a print "Location: http://www.server.com/";

To clean it up somewhat, you should use the POST rather than GET methods. The Get method puts the input in the address bar -- the POST doesn't display form input at all in the address bar.
