here is basic example for myweb.com/product/2 open .htaccess.and add the following code

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^product/(.*) /product_page.php?id=$1

above code make your myweb.com/product/2 page to get data from http://www.myweb.com/product_page.p...

if you need to know more google how to use RewriteEngine in .htaccess.

You can use java script to hide your URLs.
Explore status bar updating in javascript (window.status).

But, yeah, .htaccess is the ultimate way to implement this.
Check this for .htaccess examples.
