Layered Navigation SEO
/*/filter/* creates duplicates
Even though this extension does a nice job at making SEO friendly "looking" URLs, it actually creates duplicate pages as a result.
Checking webmaster tools, almost all duplicate content is a result of the layered navigation containing
/shirts/filter/color/green (dupe of /shirts)
/shirts/filter/size/large (dupe of /shirts)
The way to solve that, would be to add the following to your robots.txt
Otherwise, this extension is pretty dope....

Simple and straightforward
I was looking over some layered nav ajax plugins and this one just did the job, and it's free! Thank you Mr. Developer.
I ran it with the newest 1.9 rwd theme and it did override some changes I made to product/list and layer phtml files because it uses its own templates.
Nothing to worry though, you can easily upgrade those to customize the theme.
What I liked:
Straight forward. Even with my limited knowledge I could figure out how it works and apply changes. Look through the handler.js file for details.
What I disliked:
I had the problem that the rwd accordion styles were not applied for the layered nav block after the finished ajax request. I had to copy the "$j('.toggle-content').each(function()" function from rwd's app.js to the handler.js and run it after ajax success to reapply the styles.
All in all great free app. Runs out of the box and can easily be tweaked

How to fix problem with history.js
This one is working for me right now but it is early days:
I have only tested this on the Chrome browser, as made by 'Google'.

Was looking to implement checkboxes for layered navigation, this extension installed and worked with no issues and does exactly what I wanted.

Works with 1.9.1
This works great with 1.9.1 - and even works fine with the new responsive RWD theme.
All that is needed to get everything working (including price slider), is to copy the files that the extension places in design/frontend/default/default to design/frontend/base/default - and the same for skin/frontend/default/default to skin/frontend/base/default

Works with 1.9
Installed it in my latest Magento 126.96.36.199 store and it still works. One of the best extensions in the history of Magento extensions. :D

Great plugin and the developer gave support even for free.

Awesome.. even worked with 1.9
Hey, great work. I just installed this module, and to my amaze it did as expected. Since the theme i am using does not modify layered navigatiuon behaviour but only applies some styles, i will say this extension is just what i was looking for. Thank You :-)

Great extension - I love the ability to select multiple attributes rather than many of the layered navigation extensions that only let you select one attribute.
The only issue I am having with this extension is I can't get the AJAX functionality to work because I am using a custom theme (not the Magento default theme). I have contacted the developer for support however he wasn't able to help. I would be interested to hear if anyone else has managed to get the ajax functionality to work on a custom theme.
Overall still a very good extension!
