javascript thread: removing items from a browser's history


Message #1 by Jagdeep Dua <Jag.Dua@n...> on Wed, 30 Aug 2000 10:26:23 +0100
Hehe that would be great. Fool around with the user......

Unfortunately, the answer is NO; you cannot remove items from their 
history. However, I think that location.replace(URL) will replace the 
content of the page with the new URL without adding a new item to the 
history of the browser.
