Hello,
Thanks for this great solution.
My question is : Isn't there a problem with the historyStorage size, it will grow indefinitely and slow down the Browser during from JSON/to JSON operations and also occupy a big memory footprint.
Am I missing something ?

    I use it to store only the URL for the request I'm making. When moving back and forth through history that information will just reload.

      Yes but with a navigation on an intranet application the this.storageHash field will grow and grow, I displayed the size of the stringified field and I saw it growing indefinitely. Remember that only identical hashes are replaced.
      I implemented a king of FIFOBuffer that I limited to 100 entries to workaround this potential problem.
