You really don't need all that JavaScript, I promise

So you say to yourself, I have a plan. Instead of me letting the user click on a link that then goes to the browser and the browser giving me back control when the new page loads, what about implementing that myself?

Instead of letting the browser handle navigation, I will handle navigation, so as to avoid the loss of control. What I'll do is, I'll XHR the page off the server, and then I'll innerHTML it into the current page. You're getting around the loss of control by handling loading yourself. Don't trust the browser to do it, do it yourself. Implement it internally.

An excellent post from Stuart Langridge. It excellently sums up the culture of Not Invented Here that permeates the industry of late.

A Few Notes on the Culture, by Iain M Banks

It is, arguably, in the elevation of [The Market], this profoundly mechanistic (and in that sense perversely innocent) system to a position above all other moral, philosophical and political values and considerations that humankind displays most convincingly both its present intellectual [immaturity and] - through grossly pursued selfishness rather than the applied hatred of others - a kind of synthetic evil.

An HTML attribute potentially worth $4.4M to Chipotle - Cloud Four

An excellent argument for web standards and not trying to re-engineer what already exists in the browser.

I would personally make that field into a free text field that accepts YY or YYYY and do some validation on the client and server.
