Browser Notification

Is there a mechanism to be notified of browser events in an application itself ? Not from a browser field but from the built-in browser.

Re: Browser Notification

If you are developing for BBOS, there *may* be some Global events that get triggered but you would need to write a JavaScript extension to the native Java layer to integrate with those APIs; it depends on the types of events you are looking for. I do not believe most (navigation, URL changes, etc.) would be broadcast and you would not be able to retrieve additional information (i.e. what is the URL.)

Generally, what a user is doing in one application remains private from other applications, otherwise you can get into some rather large security concerns.
