Retreiving URLs from native browser open tabs... possible?

Hi guys,


This is a long shot but, does anyone know if it's possible for an app to get access to the current browser location(s)? I mean, reading the URLs of all currently opened tabs from the native browser?

Hi Fred,


Unfortunately reading open tab URLs is not supported. It would require a platform-specific (i.e. WebWorks) API, and my bet for its exclusion would be the security implications.
