    The URLUtils.hash property returns a DOMString containing a '#' followed by the fragment identifier of the URL.

    Note: In Firefox if the hash part of the URL contains encoded characters, hash will return the decoded URL part (bug 483304).  href, search and pathname however correctly return the still encoded URL parts.


    string = object.hash;
    object.hash = string;


    // Let's an <a id="myAnchor" href=""> element be in the document
    var anchor = document.getElementByID("myAnchor");
    var result = anchor.hash; // Returns:'#youhou'
