And if all that weren't bad enough, you need to send an address change with the request, otherwise the user won't be able to "click back" correctly (if confused look at what happens to the address bar when you click links in GMail).
We're searching for something that had the foresight and design goals with all these concerns in mind.

It's like asking for the holy grail right?
Yes, the NOLOH PHP Framework (the site itself was written in NOLOH) is that holy grail. NOLOH was developed from the ground up to address these issues. You develop in a single language on the server-side and it takes care of the rest. No need to worry about AJAX, or cross browser issues. NOLOH's been around since 2005 and is being used in various companies large and small. It significantly outperforms the competition in performance due to it's lightweight and on-demand nature.
If you're curious about the power of NOLOH you can also check out this Steve Jobs like one more thing demonstrating the upcoming automatic Comet.
