  1449 + Web applications often provide linkable, bookmarkable, shareable URLs for
  1450 + imporant locations in the app. Until recently, hash fragments
  1451 + (<tt>#page</tt>) were used to provide these permalinks, but with the
  1452 + arrival of the History API, it's now possible to use standard URLs (<tt>/page</tt>).
  1453 + <b>Backbone.Router</b> provides methods for routing client-side pages, and
  1454 + connecting them to actions and events. For browsers which don't yet support
  1455 + the History API, the Router handles graceful fallback and transparent
  1456 + translation to the fragment version of the URL.
