page reloading

Currently we are  having a web developed in .net. this is an e-commerce site so when a customer configures a product with specific part, the page reloads with every change. This is annoying. Is there any solution other than using frames, or Java?

Check out SmartNavigation

  "Smart navigation is an ASP.NET feature that is supported in Internet Explorer 5 and later browsers. It allows a page to be refreshed while maintaining scroll position and element focus between navigations, causing only a single page to be stored in the browser's history, and without the common flicker associated with refreshing a Web page. Smart navigation is best used with ASP.NET pages that require frequent postbacks but with visual content that does not change dramatically on return. Consider this carefully when deciding whether to set this attribute to true."
