My point was clear. The fact that Browse overrides the user-supplied 
title of the saved state is not likely to be a problem in practice. It 
is hard to imagine a use case where a user wants to give a saved 
instance of Browse a specific name so that the urls collectively can be 
restored some months later or so the user can reflect on his search at 
the time.

But Utkarsh is certainly correct, Browse has no business overriding the 
user supplied title.

I hope this is more understandable.
