MyProperty paging issue corrected

Many people complained about the way the paging works on the new MyProperty website. It used AJAX technology to update only the listings displayed when clicking on the page numbers in the search results (and not the completed page).
This resulted in visitors viewing a property say from page 5, when the click the back button in their browsers it jumped to page 1 of the search results - which is frustrating.
We have the 'view property in new window' link but maybe that link wasn't too obvious.

We've therefor changed it back to 'normal' web pages in favor of usability.



On a technical note:
This is one of my biggest frustrations with Ajax technology. Most people are used to using the back button in their browsers so your browsing history is completely lost.
We are however busy figuring this one out - rest assured we will find a solution.
