While URLs were intended to consistently identify a resource location, this simple definition simply doesn’t cut it anymore. Between the complexity of device properties, different browser capabilities, failover needs, and geo-based content changes, we often need the same URL to be handled differently, based on the situation. In this short talk, we’ll show how you can use rules to make URLs smart, both at origin and on the edge. We’ll quickly show a few tools that can help and review a few examples to show the power of rules.
