Programmed Surfing with the History Object

I discussed the history list only briefly in the previous section, so let's take a closer look at it. I like to think of this list as a kind of "stack" of Web pages that you've visited in your current browser session. Actually, I think of the history list as three separate stacks:

The Back Stack— These are pages you can return to by clicking your browser's Back button.

The Current Stack— This is the current page, so it's always a stack with only a single page.

The Forward Stack— These are pages you can return to by clicking your browser's Forward button.
