Default joomla installation generates url with index.php file in it. Now if you want to remove index.php from the url then you can use mod rewrite with .htaccess or you can use 3rd party SEF extension to remove index.php from the url.

To remove index.php from the url, go to your site root folder. You will see a file name htaccess.txt. Rename it to .htaccess and upload the file to your root folder. Now go to System->Global Configuration. Now you will see SEO Settings like below image:

Joomla 3.x site generate url with article id if you just use joomla core sef with mod rewrite. Your url should be like http://www.yoursite.com/12-how-joomla-works.html. Now if you want to remove article id(12) from the url so that your url looks like http://www.yoursite.com/how-joomla-works.html then you can use extensions like sh404SEF, JoomSEF and SEF Advance or can edit core file to remove the article id from url.

3rd party extensions has option to edit the url. It is simple and easy. Just edit the url and remove article id from the url and save it. Then no more article id will be in your url. They also have options to setup, so that article id will not include in the url.

In joomla CMS you will see a message like Joomla! 3.3.x is available Update now most of the times.
