Less implicit state on the server = better HTTP style:

• Easier to scale: at the app level, no session to replicate
  between web servers or communicate via the DB; above the app
  level, easier to use proxies to selectively route/cache stuff
  by inspecting URIs

• Easier to test and automate: no need to drive a (maybe long)
  sequence of requests to put the interaction into the right

• Better user experience: allows multiple tabs with different
  interaction state in each

• More detail in server logs: better data mining opportunities
