This describes how the browser navigated to a particular page. For example, "link" means that the browser navigated to the page because the user clicked a link.
Values of this type are strings. Possible values are:
- The user clicked a link in another page.
- The user typed the URL into the address bar. This is also used if the user started typing into the address bar, then selected a URL from the suggestions it offered. See also "generated".
- The user clicked a bookmark or an item in the browser history.
- Any nested iframes that are automatically loaded by their parent.
- Any nested iframes that are loaded as an explicit user action. Loading such an iframe will generate an entry in the back/forward navigation list.
- The user started typing in the address bar, then clicked on a suggested entry that didn't contain a URL.
- The page was passed to the command line or is the start page.
- The user submitted a form. Note that in some situations, such as when a form uses a script to submit its contents, submitting a form does not result in this transition type.
- The user reloaded the page, using the Reload button or by pressing Enter in the address bar. This is also used for session restore and reopening closed tabs.
- The URL was generated using a keyword search configured by the user.
- Corresponds to a visit generated for a keyword.
