This is deprecated now in favor of using the Document.URL property to access a Url object.

In version 1.0 of JavaScript this was a simple string primitive value that contained the actual location of a window. It was not necessarily the same value as the Window.location.href value which always contained the requested location.

As of version 1.1 of JavaScript, this is now a reference to the same object that Window.location points at. However at the same time its use became deprecated.
