This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The redirect() method of the Response interface returns a Response resulting in a redirect to the specified URL.

Note: This is mainly relevant to the ServiceWorker API. A controlling service worker could intercept a page's request and redirect it as desired. This will actually lead to a real redirect if a service worker sends it upstream.


var response = Response.redirect(url,status);


The URL that the new response is to originate from.
status Optional
An optional status code for the response (e.g., 302.)


A Response object.


TBD (does not yet appear to be supported anywhere).
