    URL.revokeObjectURL()

    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.

    Summary

    The URL.revokeObjectURL() static method releases an existing object URL which was previously created by calling window.URL.createObjectURL().  Call this method when you've finished using a object URL, in order to let the browser know it doesn't need to keep the reference to the file any longer.

    Syntax

    window.URL.revokeObjectURL(objectURL);
    
    objectURL
    is a DOMString representing the object URL that was created by calling URL.createObjectURL().

    Example

    See Using object URLs to display images.
