Rewrite URL on client browser
A client sends a GET request to my server. Now that I handled the request, how can I rewrite the client URL bar to remove the parameter string?

I've just tested using.
it seems to work when there is only one URL parameter and it appears to be broken if there are more than one.
eg: I request /foo?bar=1
turns the url into /foo
but if I request /foo?bar=1&var=3
turns the url into /foo&var=3
I am not sure if setInternalPath is meant to preserve or remove the URL parameters in this case but it looks like a bug either way.
you could implement one of the solutions in this stackoverflow question.

Thank you for your finding. At first, I thought changing internal path would preserve the whole parameter keys.
Well, this can be done by calling
setInternalPath n times where n is the number of parameter keys.

As creative that may be, I suggest we fix the issue before you rely on broken behavior :-)
Setting/removing internal paths is supposed to preserve parameters. So there is definitely a bug in the described behaviour (what version of Wt was that, Alex?)
I would suggest we create an additional API in WApplication to reset the query string (which works only in HTML5 browsers, but that's plenty good these days). Can you file a bug and/or feature request for this?
