MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

navigator.mozApps.amInstalled Redirect 2

This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.


Provides a means for an app to check whether it is installed. This function is typically called from an origin that hosts an app.


navigator.mozApps.amInstalled( callback )


A callback function; it is called with one argument: an app object if the app is installed, or null if not.
