MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek: https://blog.mozilla.org/opendesign/mdns-new-design-beta/

The TreeWalker.currentNode property represents the Node on which the TreeWalker is currently pointing at.

Syntax

node = treeWalker.currentNode;
treeWalker.currentNode = node;

Example

var treeWalker = document.createTreeWalker(
    document.body,
    NodeFilter.SHOW_ELEMENT,
    { acceptNode: function(node) { return NodeFilter.FILTER_ACCEPT; } },
    false
);
root = treeWalker.currentNode; // the root element as it is the first element!
