GWT. Remove anchor part url

Hi I am using GWT and its standart way to support history via "History" class. It is very convenient but how can I remove anchor part from an url? For example:

My base url:

http://www.mysuperwebsite.com/myapp


While using application I move to a place that adds new history item.

In code:

History.newItem("funnygame");


As result:

http://www.mysuperwebsite.com/myapp#funnygame


I change place one more time:

In code:

History.newItem("notsofunnygames");


As result:

http://www.mysuperwebsite.com/myapp#notsofunnygames


Then I want to go back to my home page (http://www.mysuperwebsite.com/myapp).

What should be placed in code?:

????


to get back to:

http://www.mysuperwebsite.com/myapp


Is there any standart way I can achieve my goal?




If I add something like this:

History.newItem("");


or

History.newItem(null);


the url will become

http://www.mysuperwebsite.com/myapp#


And this is not what I am lloking for, I need it without sharp character.

Answer

If you use History.newItem(null); a new event will be fired. As a result, you will toggle your home page : http://www.mysuperwebsite.com/myapp#

Having or not a # at the end is the same thing, am I wrong ?

EDIT:

  ...
  // Get the last part of the url and remove #token
  String s = Location.getHref().substring(Location.getHref().lastIndexOf("/"));
  s = s.substring(0, s.indexOf("#")-1);
  setToken(s);
  ...

  protected native void setToken(String token) /*-{
    $wnd.history.pushState({},'', token);
}-*/;
