Bug / inefficiency when loading Product hashbang URLs

I raised another suggestion a while back, which while unacknowledged has been implemented - see Consistent use of hashbang URLs. Thanks!


However, when loading direclty (not via click within the UI) URLs containing a Product hashbang there is a reasonably significant inefficiency.


For example:


https://inventory.dearsystems.com/Product#27081816-14A3-46B2-A3F0-B4D6B74A738F


Page load preceeds as follows:

  1. Page loads
  2. Page makes JSON request for Product listings (as if hashbang was not present)
  3. Page makes JSON request for individual product detail as per hashbang
  4. Page displays product listing (as if hashbang was not present)
  5. Page displays product detail as per hashbang

Typically, step 4 is only displayed very briefly (it flashes on the screen) but it represents an inefficiency as the product listing does not even need to be requested in the case where a hashbang is present.

Thanks!
