BOM objects JS: DOM API

A BOM is a set of global objects that control browser behavior. All of them are also found within window. Let's take a look at some of them.

BOM – Browser object model

Provides information about the browser, such as version, name, locale used, available permissions, and plug-ins enabled.

Navigator

Location

Allows you to manage the address bar. For example, this is how you can initiate the loading of another page:

location.href = 'https://hexlet.io';

Location

History

By using this object, you can navigate through the history of transitions, as well as form it in situations where there is no real transition through the pages.

History

Fetch

A modern method for executing AJAX requests. Communication with the server and other sites takes place using the fetch() function. You can learn more about this in a future lesson.
