This has to be set up on the server side. If your server "serves" the page as text/html, which it probably does, then the browser will not care about the extension. Also, when someone clicks on a link that doesn't have an extension, your server must recognize what to do with that. I don't use Apache but, in my server, one simple line makes everything without an extension go to a script.

To see how to do this in your server, if it is Apache, go to the Apache board and ask there.

It adds a little bit of security by hiding how the pages are created. so if it ends in .php, that helps a cracker know the page was generated in php.

As a user I don't like links that don't look normal, thats my opinion on this subject.
