hiding URLs from the user may look much cleaner but only because the corporate web loves making their URLs incomprehensible by tacking on a disgusting amount of query params for tracking and other purposes, as well as just not having good site architectures

it pains me to say this but YouTube is a very good example of what to actually do (excepting the prohibitively long gibberish base64 channel names). people know how to just edit a URL to make it start at a time, or set it to HQ in the old days with &fmt=18
