Document.location read-only property returns a
Location object, which contains information about the URL of the document
and provides methods for changing that URL and loading another URL.
Document.location is a read-only
object, you can also assign a string to it. This means that you can
work with document.location as if it were a string in most cases:
document.location = 'http://www.example.com' is a synonym of
document.location.href = 'http://www.example.com'. If you assign another
string to it, browser will load the website you assigned.
To retrieve just the URL as a string, the read-only
property can also be used.

console.log(document.location); // Prints a Location object to the console
