    Question Get Text from the Address bar!!

    I searched the web for quite some time and i found no information about how to retrive the text or value from the address bar (ie)
    I don't want the normal location.href stuff, be cause that just gives you the location of the current webpage, i really need a way to get the text the user entered into the address bar, is that possible at all?

    thanks in advance!!

    No, it is not possible. I'm sure that it would be a HUGE security hole if you were able to see what the user is typing before he leaves your page.
