    Selection.focusNode

    This is an experimental technology
    Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use 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 spec changes.

    The Selection.focusNode read-only property returns the Node in which the selection ends.

    A user may make a selection from left to right (in document order) or right to left (reverse of document order). The focus is where the user ended the selection. This can be visualized by holding the Shift key and pressing the arrow keys on your keyboard to modify the current selection. The selection's focus moves, but the selection's anchor, the other end of the selection, does not move.
