jURL is jQuery plugin that lets you easily work with URLs. You can parse and manipulate URLs, work with query strings, as well as set URL fragments.

The plugin is also use for detecting URIs withing text without you having to write any regular expressions.

The most useful part is that the jQuery URL Parser plugin can also modify the document (document.location.href) URL though the changes are only applied when “goto” is explicitly called against the HTML document element.
